Beautiful and long-lasting, this premium process produces exceptional contrast and crisp images. Properly displayed, this print will last without noticeable fading or change in color for generations (well over 100 years). A certificate of authenticity, signed by the artist, is included. Artwork is expertly packed, insured, and guaranteed to arrive undamaged. In this surreal photograph, Emily poses in front of a desk that is a relic of decades gone by. The filth is punctuated by an ashtray and packages from the associated vile habit. Our protagonist throws a multitude of papers in the air in a defiant expression of vibrance amidst the sinister atmosphere of rust, decay, and grime. The shadowy-blue glass blocks lining the wall behind her complement her brilliant golden hair and the old, yellowing sheets of paper fluttering through the air toward the viewer. From my Industrial Nudes theme. This collection of images sets the nude form against unnatural environments of concrete, chrome, mechanization, and grit. The series contemplates the contrast between the mechanical and the organic, the clean and the gritty. Even the strongest human body is slight and delicate when compared to the rigid, bulky elements of the industrial backdrops. It is, at its base, a commentary that compares an idealized “human as an animal” to humanity’s perpetual expansion into nature. This theme celebrates beauty and achievement by showcasing icons of mechanization in conjunction with the splendor of the human form.
