Since 1888, the cameras of the Beken of Cowes' family have captured classic sailing shots, from the magnificent cutters, schooners and J class yachts of the '20s and '30s, to today's ocean going ships. This image was created from the original glass plate negative, and finished in sepia tones. This frame is finished in burr walnut. When European designers need the perfect black-and-white photograph, they turn to the archives of the William Stafford Gallery. Based in London, the gallery sources evocative, memorable images from large and small collections across the globe. William Stafford is known for unearthing remarkable undiscovered works by the most important photographers. The combination of the finest paper and ink on each work guarantees perfect clarity for a minimum of 50 years.
