I made this picture of a Wakhi boy on his horse in Chipursan Valley, Hunza, northern Pakistan. This fertile valley region is home to the Wakhi people – prosperous, well educated, and self-sufficient farmers of grain, potatoes, vegetables, meat and dairy, with a profitable export market for disease-free seed potatoes. 

Ubaid studies engineering, speaks perfect English, showed me around the valley and then took me home for a lunch of naan, eggs, potatoes and tea. A very cool kid!

Prints are on Hahnemuhle heavyweight (315 gsm) 100% archival cotton “Photo Rag Baryta” paper, using archival inks and archival spray coating. They have a 200-year life expectancy before any deterioration of the print will be observed when stored, handled, and displayed under archival conditions.

What is often called “Gallery Wrap Canvas” is a fine art inkjet (Giclee) print on canvas, with printed edges to wrap around a wooden stretcher frame, like a painting. With canvas prints, your print image is still the same size, but given a "wrap effect" around the edges to account for the thickness of the stretcher. Canvas can be rolled and shipped with no effect to the print. Your local framing shop should be able to mount the canvas to stretchers at a fraction of the cost of traditional framing, making for an overall more economical way to get fine art on your wall. The canvas is printed to wrap around a 1-inch stretcher (1.5 inches on larger sizes). Specifications will be provided with your order. Feel free to contact us if you need guidance with your canvas order.
