About this work of Art
Red Roof. Rye Harbour. 2005.
Signed Limited edition photograph on canvas.
Edition limited to 200.
I am absolutely delighted that Red Roof has been selected for this years Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition and has also been made into postcards and mini-prints for Royal Academy merchandise.
When I photographed Red Roof it was a pea soup foggy day in Rye and as I wandered down the estuary something made me turn back and as I did a black and white beach hut with a red roof appeared out of the mist for a few seconds, it looked like some kind of mirage floating in the fog and I set my aperture, composed the shot and took 3 images, then the mist closed in and the hut disappeared. I felt that I had captured the image, but it wasn’t until the film was processed that I knew I had caught the essence of the scene.
This image is sold as a photograph printed onto canvas and is stretch mounted over a wooden frame, so it’s ready to hang on the wall. NB This is a smaller version of the one displayed at the RA, the larger version is also available via Wychwood Art.
