You know that I’m a little lost.

You know that I’m ok with that.

You know each morning is another chance to be me.

“This photo conjures up so many emotions for me. I took it on my last morning in Hiroshima. I can so very easily get lost in sunrises (and sunsets) and this morning was no exception. The light was so soft, it lit the room with a sense of hope and anticipation. I remember waking up and feeling a little bit more ok with being me, it was like over night I had been given a little emotional ticket to embrace the day that was to come. It felt so right to pick up my camera, which lay beside my bed, and take this shot. I needed to remember this feeling, I needed to share this with others.”

Finer Space’s 2 penny worth:

A beautiful shot, capturing well the hues of gentle shadows. We are once again given a glimpse into Maggie’s world - here is a segment of a story, which she allows us to create our own thoughts around.

Maggie mostly uses a precious older Nikon camera to shoot with film as opposed to digital. Film produces a slightly different feel to a photo - to compare the difference, see our other artist Douglas’s works, which are shot with a digital camera. We think the lovely tone, softness and grain of photos that have been shot with film suits Maggie’s aesthetic style and subject matter beautifully.

Where we’d hang it:

This is our ultimate dreamy photo - we’d love to have it hanging in our bedroom or above a day bed in a sun-room.

Thank you so much for sharing with us, Maggie.

The Technical Details

Maggie’s special photo has been printed onto Canson Rag Photographique. This beaut museum quality archival paper is a matte stock, 100% cotton, is 310gsm and a lovely bright white. It handles shadow detail and tonal variations beautifully. The inks used are fully archival Epson UltraChrome K3® pigment inks. They’re pretty special inks, and with the correct care this piece will last a lifetime.

 There’s a thin white margin around this piece, which helps with framing (so the actual piece isn’t obscured by the frame), and importantly enables you to be able to pick up the artwork without touching it (oils from your hands can ruin the printed area).

This here is a quality piece of artisan craft.

Packaging:

Your prints will arrive in strong, acid-free clear polypropylene sleeves or sheets. We’ll pop the artwork in it’s sleeve into a super-duper strong kraft mailing tube so that it survives it’s journey to you completely unscathed. For more info, see our Quality and Sustainability section.

We also include a card with the artist’s story, as well as their story behind your chosen artwork.

Upon receiving your print

Wash and dry your hands thoroughly before handling. There is likely to be a slight curl as it has been resting inside the postage tube. Gently unfurl. Keeping the print within it’s protective cover, you can carefully weigh each corner (for example, with a book), to help the curl straighten out.

When you do take the print out of it’s protective cover, touch only the edges of the paper, and lift the print by the opposite corners.

We do include a little ‘how to care for your print’ piece with every artwork, so if your piece is intended as a gift the lucky recipient will have guidance.
