Ben Wood followed in the footsteps of his great-grandfather, who ran a portrait studio in Baker Street, London. After a few years assisting internationally renowned photographers David Bailey and Don Freeman, he struck out on his own. Best known for his signature sepia marine photographs, Wood has created an impressive body of work encompassing classic motor-racing, horse racing, landscapes, and his highly successful shell series. This print's gesso-and-wood frame is hand-finished by craftsmen using traditional 17th-century Florentine techniques. This frame is hand-painted in black.
