A few years ago I developed a fascination with doors. Thousands of photos later, my friends are still teasing me with “great knockers” jokes, but come on – look at that door! In Paris, it’s just your average apartment building entranceway. They’re a dime a dozen in the Marais, relics of a time when even the builders of mass housing fostered workmanship and artistry.
My artworks are toner photo prints, handcrafted on 8×8″ wood blocks. To differentiate them from my regular photo blocks, I am adding a metal leaf border and a cast-metal fleur de lys clavos at the corner of each piece, which will come with a signed certificate of authenticity indicating that it is a unique print created for the “City of Delight” project. The blocks are freestanding but can also be mounted using hanging hardware (I can provide this upon request, at extra cost). I have set the price of each piece at $75 to reflect Paris’ famous “75” postcode. 20% of my profits will be donated to UNESCO and the UNHCR at the end of 2016.
