I have just been along to the exhibition and seen the framed images in the flesh for the first time. As you know, a print under glass in a frame on the wall seen from the appropriate distance has a very different ‘presence’ compared to the unmounted print seen up close. Normally I can’t help nit-picking my images and I am particularly fussy about print quality and the prints you did for me are particularly important because they are the largest in the series.
I wanted to write to you and let you know that seeing the prints on the wall left me quite stunned by their quality. All three prints are absolutely beautiful and convey the impact, tonal richness and three dimensionality that I thought I was being foolish to hope for. The time you spent with me getting things right at the testing and printing stage has so visibly paid off and I am left without any of the usual nagging doubts as the date for the private viewing and sales approaches. You have done a tremendous job and I hope that the exhibition does well so that we can produce the print run that your efforts deserve.
