“The world is your kaleidoscope, and the varying combinations of colors which at every succeeding moment it presents to you are the exquisitely adjusted pictures of your ever-moving thoughts.”
James Allen, As A Man Thinketh, 1902
Saatchi Art, the online presence of the famous Saatchi Gallery of London, brings together collectors and artists. Collectors can search for original artworks they might like using different search criteria. In the photography section, this can be for example the style an artist chose, the subject of the photography, or the medium used for the print. Medium categories are for example digital, black and white, color, or Polaroid. To represent color photography on their website, Saatchi Art chose my photograph “Over Russia (2)” from the “Above the Clouds”-collection, a powerful picture of an evening sky turned into all kinds of red and purple by the setting sun which I shot from an airliner on a flight from Germany to China in 2014. Check that out on Saatchi Art!
“It is not that I am so wise that I can predict what will happen next. What I do know is that if one wants to get a boat ride, one must be near the river.”
Anchee Min, Becoming Madame Mao, 2000, p. 21
I am very happy to announce that prints of my photographs are now available on Saatchi Art! What now calls itself the world’s leading online art gallery, was started in 2006, then as Saatchi Online, by the famous Saatchi Gallery of London.
The photographs I selected for Saatchi Art especially convey the atmosphere of the moment when the picture was taken. Some of the pictures are vibrant and lively, others show gentle color transitions giving a feeling of peacefulness and serenity. I believe this is best transported by Fine Art Prints. You can also opt for Gallery Photo Paper Prints, both options are of course printed with archival pigmented inks. For some photographs I even offer Canvas Prints coated with a special UV protective layer. I used to think canvas is not the right medium for photographs, even though it has become increasingly popular. But because of the distinctive characteristics of some of the pictures I have chosen for my Saatchi Art Portfolio, I have somewhat changed my mind on that.
