About The Photo:
Hungry Mother State Park, VA
On my first trip to Hungry Mother State Park, I was doing some video work. Getting some footage of beautiful parks and I wanted to showcase some during the winter. The leaves may be gone, the area might seem lifeless but that is not the case.
Underneath the facade, is a world alive! The trees might seem dead, but they lie waiting for the first touch of spring to awaken. The animals may seem sluggish or even non-existent, but they are there, waiting for winter to pass. It may not seem alive, but you would be mistaken, underneath it all the world carries on unseen.
We may not see it, but its there, strong and vibrant.
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.
