Numbered edition of 80 pieces

The print is stuck without overlap on a composite aluminium sheet. This fine and light material is the most suited to perfectly conserving a very large photograph perfectly flat plane in the long term. Suited to large format works, this finish allows a direct focus on the work. The print is covered with an anti-reflection film which protects it from deterioration from humidity and UV rays. This film is invisible on naked eye. Its 0,8" thick frame makes the structure easier to hang the photograph separating it from the wall. The work is easily hung with steel wire (or with two hooks for giant and collector formats because of their weight). ABOUT THIS PHOTOGRAPH : PENTHOUSE POOL. The photograph was taken in Athens, in a villa belonging to Paul and Alexandra Canellopoulos. The scene which gathers several young women takes place around an outdoor swimming-pool. While the Acropolis stands out in the background, the photograph also evokes the classical theme found in Naiade art. The five female figures are sitting around the pool. They are comfortably sitting on yellow and red cushions and mattresses around the blue pool water. The presence of the three primary colours gives perfect harmony to the group. The natural light caresses their tanned skin and profound tranquillity emanates from this vision. Three of the women are looking at the lens whilst the other two others don’t seem at all worried about it. The young women are not posing but are unpretentiously open to the camera. Here, everything is luxury, calm and delight, as if it could not be otherwise. (1961)
