1995 Firemen


1995 Firemen


Add to Wishlist



Working in a factory in North Italy, I lived in a small mountain village – Bondone. At the bar the firemen was gathering to celebrate something I never understood. They sang together, and drank Grappa. And the singing made them come together in this posture. In many ways, coming from Scandinavia, I often felt I was time traveling back to 1950.

The photograph is hand signed and dated on the mat (passepartout) by Jesper Sø.
The frame is made in Denmark using FSC certified wood (wood from sustainable forestry) and arrives to you without glass. Not because of the easier shipping, but because I believe photographs should be enjoyed without the visual disturbing light reflections on the glass.
The mat (passepartout) is cut from PH neutral carton.
The digital print is made on Fujicolor Crystal Archive Paper Supreme. As the name suggests it has good archival abilities. That being said, nothing stays unmarked of time and light, so the image has a sort of build in change over time, as any other photographic image has.
