Fine art photograph with custom-made frame, limited edition of 30, printed on Hahnemühle William Turner® Fine Art Photo Paper (310g), a very warm paper with a pronounced grainy texture (watercolour paper, adding intensity and personality), 100% white cotton.

Each print is numbered and signed by the photographer, Laurence Corteggiani, and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

The photographs are sold framed: a lightweight wooden frame with a 3cm black border, 2mm anti-reflective plexiglass and 2-way fastenings on the back. The passepartout, either black or white, is chosen to perfectly enhance the photograph (see detail below), and is made of textured, bevelled cardboard (contrasting white bevel for the black passepartout).

The story behind the photo:

This photo, "Ume, Kyoto" is part of Series 1: "The Contour of Things".

Long before the first signs of spring, ume, plum blossoms, display their delicate petals in the gardens of Kyōto. Less photographed than their sakura cousins, they have the shyness of those to whom we forget to tell that they are marvellously beautiful.

Series 1: "The Contour of Things

"The poet's pen draws the outline of things and gives a name to what is nothing " William Shakespeare

The curious eye sees, the photograph captures, and the words try to tell the story behind it all, a story often invented and fantasised, which connects us to the beauty of the world in general and that of Asia in particular. This 'contour of things' is like a universal language.

Laurence, the founder of Atelier Ikiwa, brings back photos from her wanderings around Asia, with her eye for detail and the emotion of the world, which she captures on the spot, for the feelings that the scenes she sees bring and to keep a trace of them for the memory.
