"Abandoned for almost 50 years, this was a beautiful tea room with richly decorated plastered ceilings. Built in the 1800’s, It was part of a large hotel with 140 rooms. It featured many services for its aristocratic clients. A grand queen stayed here during the era of thermal medicine. It was recently sold for just over 10,000 euros, which is a ridiculous price given its size. However, it will need millions to be renovated. I arrived here at 6am and waited for the little light from the sun to rise over the valley into the single tiny window in the room" Grand Salon is part of acclaimed photographer Gina Soden’s series – How Long Is Now (2020). This is a series that plays with a powerful paradox. At first glance, the viewer might think the photographs only depict the past: past dreams, past lives, past structures. In fact, Soden’s work really talk about the present and our perception of passing time. This series pushes the viewer into a profound reflection about the meaning of time, and our understanding of the present moment — of Now Printed on Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta 325gsm Giclee print, a premium quality paper, which is perfect for Gina Soden's brightly coloured and textured images. Fine Art Baryta paper has a similar foundation to that used in the past in traditional silver fibre prints. The paper's unique glossy Baryta surface lends itself perfectly to saturated colour images. Edition of 15 with 2 A/P's. Gina Soden personally prints and check the artwork in her studio. It will then be packaged and rolled in a tube sent by courier. Size includes 2cm border so it is ready for framing. With your artwork there will be a signed & numbered certificate of authenticity. This can be affixed to the back of the print when framed.

Gina Soden, artist and photographer, is available at Wychwood Art. At the heart of Gina Soden’s photography is a preoccupation with abandoned structures and locations. Based in London, she travels widely to undisclosed sites throughout Europe and explores the boundaries of beauty, decay, nostalgia and neglect. The genesis of each piece is often the unique architectural character of each location, heightened by their painfully slow transformation after years of abandonment.
