When I went to Sharon’s to keep our photo appointment, the two Italians were with her at the kitchen table and Roberto was rolling a joint.  I set up my tripod while Roberto lit up. The joint was passed and just as Paolo took a hit I was ready to get to work. Keeping with my practice for most Taylor Camp environmental portraits taken beneath clear plastic roofs, I set the Nikor PC at f16, over exposed by two stops and underdeveloped.

“Well, I arrived at Taylor Camp with a group of Italian friends and we followed a little trail into the woods. And as I was walking all these things started appearing. And I was thinking, hmm, you know, coming from a different culture in Italy, I thought, wow, this is different. And then as I got closer to the tree houses, I remember seeing this naked girl walking toward us on the trail, and I thought, wow, this is really interesting (laughing). And I thought, oh my God, (laughing) this is the place.

“Drugs? Yeah, we got stoned, smoked a little pot, but not like -- nothing very excessive, maybe a couple of mushrooms once in a while. You know, it was the culture at that time, you know 60’s, 70’s, so drugs came with the territory. But I met a lot of great people there.  I look back, I see a lot of these people, they are still married, they have kids, their kids are married, they have families, you know, in a society right now that -- you know, it's not like that. You know what I mean? So, there was something pure there that definitely build a foundation for a lot of the people.” ­— Paolo Baricchi

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.
