A wonderful shot by Stuart Redler, whose interest in far-flung (and near) places and cultures has resulted in unusual images of architecture, people and nature. The unexpected and sometimes humorous subject matter, combined with the intense contrasts of black and white and use of strong light, give his pictures their stark and unique style. The print is set in a gesso-and-wood frame, which was hand-finished by craftsmen using traditional 17th-century Florentine techniques. This frame is hand-finished in Florentine silver.
