In celebration of my favorite time of year and holiday that comes along with it, Halloween< I am releasing the print "Witch's House".
It is a tribute to a personal tale of monsters and horror of my childhood.
There is a shed in the backyard of my parents house where I grew up that my sister and I would refer to as "The Witch's House". We would dare each other to the shed which was scary even during the day. But at night, it was a true dare to be able to go, on your own, and peek inside.
The shed still stands and the summer of 2013 I decided to photograph it with my niece Carly. This project finally gave the childhood tale my sister and I created an image of the protagonist we feared as kids.
This print of "Witch's House" is a color pigment print on beautiful Hahnemüle 305 gsm Photo Rag Ultra Smooth paper.
The color on this print is a reference to my deep love of German expressionist horror films of the early 1900s. >br>
The print is signed and comes mounted in a Crescent® WHITE CORE, acid-free smooth white board.The mat is beveled cut and is 4-ply.
The mat is hinged to a white board backer with museum fabric tape.
The mounted print comes in a sealed clear cellophane bag.
To make framing simple and cost effective for the collector, the mat board is cut to fit in most standard 8x8 frames.
