The Red Corporation

Dear Patron

I invite you to view my SIGNATURE collections.

The work comprises single photographs or series which I believe constitute valuable and important career milestone images.  Specially chosen to endorse by representation my understanding of the fundamentals or DNA of the photographic genres I choose; ie. 'decisive moment’ urbanscape/landscape/street, still life, abstract and portraiture.

 
I hope that by exploiting this knowledge the work speaks of a subtle beauty, often laced with a tense incongruity, all the while achieving my ultimate aim, and that is to create compelling art photography.
 
NB:  I limit my SIGNATURE EDITIONS  to very low numbers. 

For your reference;

EXTRA LARGE  & LARGE PRINTS
  • 3 (three) prints per series + 1 artist proof. 
MEDIUM/SMALL/EXTRA SMALL PRINTS
  •  5 (five) prints per series + 1 artist proof.

My ratiionale for such a low edition number;

scarcity has a value 
  • The prints you are buying are unusual and uncommon. Low numbers mean the editions sell out.  I want you to have something that can no longer be bought.
I would like to add that your patronage is appreciated.  From the revenue I make from the sales of my work, I develop new projects that could very well be of interest to you, the collector.
