About the photo:
Downtown St. Pete, FL
During the COVID Pandemic of 2020, the world had become a weird place. People stayed home, cars remained parked and the world quieted for a time. It was a strange moment in history.
This was a shot taken mid this time. A street that is never empty. A time of day that would normally be overcrowded. In a place that always has traffic. To capture this shot again, with the sunset on fire like it is, would nearly be impossible and that is what makes this photo so unbelievable.
It captures a beautiful scene during a tumultuous time! The dichotomy of this photo stands strong just as we did through that event!
Images are infused into specially coated surfaces, providing the most durable and longest lasting print medium. The aluminum panels are extremely durable, offering scratch and abrasion resistance without hiding your image behind glass. Sublimation metal also offers the highest fade resistance compared to every other photo medium.
Dye-sublimation printing is a computer printing technique which uses heat to transfer dye onto many materials. In order to transfer the image from the paper to the aluminum, it requires a heat press process that is a combination of time, temperature and pressure. The heat press applies this special combination, to “transfer” the sublimation dyes at the molecular level into the aluminum.
The images are fade resistant- the latest testing shows they will last a lifetime with resistance to yellowing and climate damage. They are chemical resistant- the surfaces can be cleaned with ammonia, bleach, acetone or any all-purpose cleaner. The images are also moisture resistant.
The aluminum is .045" thick and is finished with a float mount on the back for hanging. The Aluminum panels are lightweight, durable, and made with recycled material and 100% recyclable.
