The photo used to make up this print features a young woman reading while managing her market stall on Reclamation Street in Yau Ma Tei, Hong Kong. For anyone who has been along Reclamation Street late in the afternoon will know this photo is something of an anathema. The street is busy, it’s noisy and is crowded. That’s one thing. There other is this, I rate this picture as one of my best. Not in the sense that I’m a man and this woman is young and attractive. There’s more. There’s something about the light. There’s something about the ambience. There is something about all the detail in this photo. There is something that is so Hong Kong about this image. There’re the two fans, the scale and the calendar in the background. There’s something about the bunches of garlic on the one side and the stalks of ginger on the other side. I could go on. But, for the sake of brevity, let’s just leave it here. Again, this is Hong Kong and life as it is lived on the streets.
All prints offered for sale from this site are paper based. The prints are made using the Lambda C printing process, a process whereby a digital image is projected onto some form of chromogenic photo-sensitive media via three [RGB] laser beams. The media is then run through a wet chemical process to render the final print. We offer either a matt or glossy photo finish. Each print has a 1 centimetre white boarder around it. We do not offer framing or mounting.
At this time we do not offer prints using ink-jet printing technologies. Simply put, our digital workflow has been optimised to use Lambda C printing process technologies. Our printers use Fuji’s Photo Crystal papers. By archival standards, Fuji papers are on par with the best art papers used to make ink-jet prints. While we do not usually sign our prints, each print comes with its own signed Certificate of Authenticity.
