Metallic Berlin

I’ve started preparing for a show I’m doing at the KPL in October. I did a brief write-up of it back in October and wanted to do a quick update on where I am.

I’ve ordered most of the prints. I took a while to decide on what the photos were going to be and how they were going to be presented. Originally I wanted to do them all on metal, but that proved a bit too expensive, mostly because there will be 18 photos total in the show. Instead of printing them on metal, I decided to have them printed on metallic paper. It’s something I’ve never done and I mostly just wanted to try something different.

There are three sizes; 12x16, 16x16, and 16x24. I spent a while figuring out how they would go together and settled on a look that will have every single frame, including the mat, line up top to bottom. In my initial plans I wanted to do one or two images at about 3x4 feet but this would throw a wrench in my plan to have all the frames line up. I’m also going to be doing the framing myself (at least I’m pretty sure I will) and I’ve never done something that large and, frankly, it kind of worries me that I’d botch it.

The included image is the 12x16 prints.
