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. Wood is best known for his signature sepia marine work but he has diversified widely since 2003 and now has an impressive selection 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.
William Stafford Gallery has a sterling reputation for its reproduction prints. The London-based gallery is a treasure trove of fine art prints, contemporary black-and-white photography, sepia photography, and works in color. By commissioning artists and photographers and then controlling all aspects of print production, the gallery ensures a consistently exceptional quality. Through collaborations with master framemakers, it offers new and refreshing presentation ideas in pace with today's design trends.
