This series of pictures came as a result of the deep longing I had for Vancouver while I was working in Eastern Canada.
This is a path in the exquisite Nitobe Garden at UBC.
A friend of mine told me the story of the Emperor of Japan and the Gardener at the Nitobe Garden.
On a recent visit to Vancouver, the Emperor had the opportunity to visit this beautiful place. When the Emperor entered the garden, the gardener hid lest he be seen but close enough to hear the Emperor exclaim "Ah, now I feel at home!" I can't imagine the feeling the gardener had on hearing this. It is without doubt, the best compliment he could have been given.
This picture was captured on a large format camera using a discontinued but beautiful film called Kodak High Speed Infrared in 2003. I chose this because I wanted to make very large prints of excellent quality. This particular image is part of a folio titled "A Search for Silence." It is a museum quality, archival Giclee print, made on Epson Hot Press Bright Rag Paper and is available in several editions and sizes. All prints are signed by the artist. Each print is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
Each print is shipped unframed as framing choices are myriad and add substantially to the cost of shipping. I will be happy to offer advice on framing styles and resources for the print you choose.
The picture is available in the following sizes and editions. Once an edition has been filled, the picture will no longer be available in that size. No other sizes or editions will be offered.
