The light in Cherry and Hawk’s second floor bedroom was wonderful.  I set up the tripod and camera while Cherry was nursing and made this photo just after baby Moses fell asleep and popped off of Cherry’s breast—momma’s milk dripping down his chin.

“We were all searching for something. I came from Miami, Florida.  A lot of the people came from California, New York, Canada and Europe. I was only 17, hitchhiked across the country, flew to Kauai and ended up at Taylor Camp.  I was there for three weeks.  It rained every day.  I was ready to leave, walked out on the beach and met Hawk.

“It was a great experimental living situation.  There were no rules.  There was nothing you signed when you came into camp. It all just kind of happened naturally.  There was a co-op.  There was church.  There would be wild parties.  There would be babies born.  It was just kind of all going on and we were all living with 6-mil plastic walls between us.” — Cherry Hamilton

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.
