Suggested Framing

My photographs highlight negative space surrounding the animal subjects. In order to reinforce the use of space in these images, I suggest leaving a white border and using a white frame so that the photograph is foregrounded and the frame almost disappears.

I typically exhibit these photographs with a two-inch white border. I mount them to acid-free Sintra board. I recommend framing these images with a chunky, sturdy, wood such as maple, that is painted white, with a 2 inch deep side and with a 3/4 in. wide face (see right). Float the image in the frame using a .5 in. setback. If you plan to ship the photograph, use acylic (instead of glass) glazing. Acrylic is also lightweight, which makes the artwork easier to move and hang.

Rather than sign my prints, I sign a sticker that is put on the back of the framed work.

Please email me with any further questions.
