I made this little piece to go in our print auction. Had to paint the frame white because the original wood was a terrible colour, this is just to see what my pieces look like framed. I think it works well, it protects the print but also allows it to change in colour and curl over time.

Just a little experiment, thought I would try printing out a business card on to a small sheet of black and white paper. Very basic layout because I am really not sure how to go about designing a business card but it's pretty unique! The two photographs show its change in colour over a few minutes.
Inspiration this time from Masao Yamamoto, the weathered quality to his photographs is really beautiful, my favourite image is the one at the top of the small bird. His approach to framing is great too, clusters of small images draw you in to look closely.

I need to start thinking seriously about how I am going to frame my final pieces (not that I know what they are going be yet though!) I really like Wolfgang Tillmans approach to framing because he seems to pick the right frame for the right picture or in some cases knows that no frame is even needed. For my own work I like the idea of having a large piece that is not framed and stuck to the wall somehow and a few smaller pieces that are framed. Lots of work still to do!
