Hosta Flower and Leaves
Black & White Photograph
An image of the leaves of the common landscape plant, the hosta, surrounding one of it's flowers. This picture was taken in early June, at the beginning of the flowering process. This is one image from a series of five which won First Place in the International Photography Awards in the flora division in 2008, and First Place in the entire Nature category of PX3, the Prix de la Photographie, Paris, in 2009.
The picture is printed on 16.5X23.37 inch mat surface fine art paper using archival pigment inks, which produces a border of approximately 3.15 inches on the sides and an inch on the top and bottom. It is titled and numbered on the lower left, and signed and dated on the lower right. It is number 2 of an edition of 50 plus 2 artist's proofs.
