This is an old photo of mine taken, I think, in 2008 from the roof of some flats in Forest Hill, South London. Once I figured out how to get up there, I took a lot of pictures from this location. This was probably the most popular, and to be honest I got so sick of seeing them I stopped selling them around 2010.

But I still get emails every month about them, and I decided I quite like this one again! You can see what I think is the scaffolding for the Shard going up. It suddenly seems churlish to refuse to print any more, so here it is. The detail in it is pretty cool, as shown in the close up detail square. Memories....


We build everything ourselves in the gallery. The photograph is printed on the very best archival matte canvas and then left flat to dry for a few days. The great thing about a matte finish with no glass is that you have no distracting glare or reflections. It's a much more direct experience.

Whilst the print is drying we can get on with making the stretcher frame and the tray frame that the finished canvas will drop into. The tray frame is hand painted.

Next the canvas is stretched over the stretcher frame. After that, we carefully paint the canvas  edges with several coats of the same paint used on the tray frame, so the they match perfectly. Then we assemble the canvas and frame, put a hanging wire on the back, and attach a Certificate of Authenticity. Finally Neil signs the piece front and back adding the title and edition number.

We use the very best materials, and I would expect my pictures to look exactly the same in 100 years. They won't fade in our lifetime.
