This is an original photographic analogue print. Printed on Lith paper, washed with a selenium split tone and flashed. This technique perfected by my printer Gene Nocon

A hommage to the first glass plate recorders of photography. I specifically shot this on large format polariod negative. In the printing I left all the lines, marks of the polaroid process. It gives it a much older and more unique feel. So sad the age of polaroid is all but passed. Let us see if the brave companies endeavouring to relight this flame are able to.

This photographic print is a one off original unique. It is one of two versions of this image. Neither in their rendition are identical, save for the subject matter.

The print is sized as 39cm x 50cm. It is mounted on an acid free white mount size 51cm x 61cm.

It is in a sleek black frame unglazed or can (for transportation purposes) can have special plastic 'glass' (approved by all major auction houses). It can also be glazed for preference - i.e. non reflective museum glass

Ice Rink Central Park NYC 1983

This is an original photographic analogue C-Type colour print.

Famed as the setting for many great movies, Love Story with O’Neil and MacGraw being one. This rink, an iconic statement of New York and of Central Park, has its own Hollywood story unfold shortly after I took this image in 1983. Purchased and redesigned as the rink we have today. The Wollman Rink, as it was known, was allegedly sold to an English Real Ale entrepreneur who redeveloped it, having bought it for cents off the NYC council, who then agreed to pay the costs of development! Wily Brit!

This image is one of my favourites, not for the awards it cultivated but for the eternal symbolism it illustrates. The young lad in the centre, standing absolutely still as the chaos of the world spins around him.

The original 35mm transparency has been destroyed making this Cibachrome original analogue print a collector's art piece. The original rink was destroyed thus making this image a record of past history.

Within my book "An Evolutionary Journey" I relate the full story behind the setting, the taking and the subsequent evnts following this image.

This print is available as an original photographic print. It is a Cibachrome print - size of image is 33.5 x 51 cms As with all originals sold there are only two copies. One will always remain with the photographer. So their uniqueness is guaranteed. They are utterly non reproducable due to the original analogue processes they were created in.
Any Copyright overlay apparent in screen images will NOT appear on print!

The print comes with a note of provenance, written and signed by the photographer alongside a complete sotry of its creation and backstory. It will be certified as one of two limited edition.

Haka Hunk

This is an original photographic analogue C-Type colour print.

Frano Botica, a one time All Black player gave his huge sporting skills to both rugby union and league. As a Kiwi he
willingly subscribed to be made up Maori style suiting his roots to a T. It is often seen and projected from the outside of the industry to be a glamorous cushy ‘job’. When working with such pros as Frano it was sheer joy, huge laughs and fun, yet delivering the ‘ job’ is what we all get paid for. Working with so called ‘celebs’ you meet all sorts, have to pander to every whim and fancy of another treading the rodent wheel of fame. At times like these I am grateful for family heritage, that of a lineage of diplomats. Something must have rubbed off as I always made sure the difficult ones were given just enough attention to feel ‘special’ but no more making it appear fawning. Frano required none of this as he was such a great face and character and a privilege to have in front of the lens In spite of the campaign being for a major brewery we never touched a drop during the shoot. These opportunities allowed me to interact with the person, not their P.R., image or public persona. 

This print is available as an original photographic print. It is a C-type print - size of image is 39 x 50 cms
This image is a photographic limited edition of three. Each will be marked as 1 of 4 as they are purchased. One remains with the photographer so the edition will start at 2/4.
One will always remain with the photographer. So their uniqueness is guaranteed. They are utterly non reproducable due to the original analogue processes they were created in. The original transparency has been destroyed.

Digital copies are available of this image but are NOT photographic thus do not affect the original nature of the analogue limited edition prints.

Frano Botica New Zealand All Black Rugby player

Mount Sinai

In 1989 a small group of us ascended its impressive and often tricky walk to the summit. On the way down I took this image happily getting two of the group further down to add scale. What happened as I took the image only revealed its fullest story weeks later in the lab. Taking my trusty Nikon, I shot and instantaneously felt a sharp, electric current shoot down through my spine. At the time so excited was I at what I had captured I let it pass. In the lab with Gene Nocon my printer
responsible for creating the extraordinary finish to my capture, we experienced something so strange, so abnormal and beyond all laws of chemistry and physics. You can see where mountain meets the sky there’s a halo of light. When printing to get best
exposure for final print, tests are done increasing exposure across the print. We discovered that even with an exposure normally turning any image pitch black this area stayed bright and
unaffected. That is where it went beyond any reality. It was then in the darkroom I remembered the electric shock and had the insight this monument was merely giving us proof of a greater
dimension of reality than any could possibly imagine. Awe and wonder are perfect descriptions of what this showed us, represented and left us with. Just one of the many sacred site photos I
collected gifting me profound and personal experience.  

This print is available as an original photographic print. It is a silver nitrate print - size of image is 34 cms x 49 cms
This print is a photographic limited edition of two.  One remains with the photographer so the edition will start at 2/2.

Gene Nocon did treat it with a selenium toned wash thus the colouration. This alone was a technique perfected by us for my images.

One print will always remain with the photographer. So their uniqueness is guaranteed. They are utterly non reproducable due to the original analogue processes they were created in. The original negative interestingly destroyed itself. Literally the silver nitrate disintegrated even though stored securely and properly. The mystery of all this thickens!

Digital copies are available of this image but are NOT photographic thus do not affect the original nature of the analogue limited edition print.

Any Copyright overlay apparent in screen images will NOT appear on print!

The print comes with a note of provenance, written and signed by the photographer alongside a complete story of its creation and backstory. It will be certified as one of four in a limited edition.
