I have had an intimate relationship with shadows since my childhood. I remember I used to run after them all day by myself, perfectly content with their company. I kept a record of their lengths and was fascinated by the deformations of my own shadow as I moved. Of course, late afternoons were my favorite time, as they came with the longest shadows.
This photograph was taken on the roof of Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona, under the late afternoon sunlight. When I saw the girl approaching the sculptures from the right, as if chasing her own shadow, I immediately fell back in time to my childhood games. I pressed the shutter: it felt like being 7 years old again.
The whole scene had an implicit connection with Miró himself, whose abstract, expressive and inventive figures and motifs were related to his childhood and dreams. At the moment I took this photo, I momentarily felt this same link.
We are currently offering photographs in two different formats:
- Classic: 40x30cm or 50x40cm (depending on image)
- Large: 80x60cm
Each photographs' size has been decided in collaboration with the photographer to make sure the final piece is in the optimal dimension to suit the work.
All prints are produced on Baryta Hahnemühle 315g, on Epson Pigment Inkjet. All prints have been approved by the photographer. We work closely with each photographer to ensure every edition reflects their intentions.
Each print will come with its own "story" printed on museum archive quality paper.
For more info about our printing process, please read about our partnership with the legendary photo lab Picto.
The edition is not limited based on quantity but based on time. Each sale will present a unique selection of photographs and formats that will only be available for the duration of the sale. The limited time is part of what make our prints special.
