Do you like to make your own mind up when looking at artwork?
Do you want to consider it’s merits, or otherwise, in isolation from the artist’s influence?
We believe that what you see in a piece may well be different from the our view.

With this in mind, we give you the opportunity here to view our prints prior to knowing any of our views. We initially present the title of the work and the bare bones of the physical aspects of a print. When (if) you are interested in our views about the work or the story of it’s creation, then this can be seen by clicking on the plus sign (+) next to “Our View” panel.

We trust that you will understand and appreciate our thinking behind doing this. Your views of our work is of interest to us – why not drop us a message with your thoughts! We’d love to hear from you…

We took our inspiration for this print from the Victorian botanical paintings, like at Kew Gardens. Whilst we weren’t inclined to dig up and slice in half a daffodil bulb, like in the paintings, having four daffodils in different stages of flowering is our modern interpretation.

Using four of the same type of daffodil did cause us a degree of *amusement* in the selecting of buds or flowers.  We were looking for stems of similar stature and heads which would show an interesting side in the proposed arrangement.

We are pleased with the selection as they do show a progression of flowering going around in a circle shape. The choice of lighting giving form to the stems as well as gently illuminating the full blooms works particularly well here.

We wonder if the Victorian botanists would approve of our interpretation. We hope so.

Are you in agreement with our views? Why not let us know your thoughts.

All of our prints are available for purchase.

As we print all orders on demand (i.e. we have no huge warehouse full of wonderful prints!!) fulfilling your order is not an overnight operation. In light of this, we ask you to send your request below. Please include any information as to when you require the print e.g. if it is a present, when you would prefer to be giving the print. This will assist us in knowing if it is possible to create a finished Hand Printed Photo in time. We want you to be happy with the print!

Each print is from our own film negative and will be hand printed by us, The Printer, in our photographic darkroom. We only use quality silver gelatin fibre based paper for any prints.
