*SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES* COVID 19 and the Effects on Deliveries
Due to changes in border restrictions, health and safety procedures as well as a significant increase in online ordering, the companies we rely on to deliver your goods are experiencing significant delays across the country. Whilst we understand that delays of any length can be frustrating, we want to assure you that we are doing everything in our power to get your orders to you as quickly and safely as possible. However, at this time we are unable to provide any guarantees regarding delivery.

Limited Edition Archival Photographic Print Series by Paul Blackmore.
Heat explores the intimate relationship between humanity and nature. Fundamental to this work is the powerful force of water. The majority of the series is photographed from the perspective of the water. Capturing people entering the ocean, under it or bathing in it as storms approach. The work is a study relevant to our contemporary world; the juxtaposition of the pursuit of individual freedom in crowded spaces, the quiet vast privacy of being underwater in noisy, populated cosmopolitan areas, and the physical power the ocean has over the coastal dwellers. While the photos seek beauty, they are vibrant and and at times haunting reminders of our cultural and spiritual reliance on our beaches and the redemptive power of the ocean.
HEAT series prints are limited to editions of 9.
All prints are dry mounted on archival materials and framed with a high quality, locally sourced timber moulding (2cm face and a 40mm depth reveal). The Large has a frame that is 30mm on the face and a 45mm depth reveal.
