About the photograph

This photograph depicts the iconic skyline of Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge, in hues of blue and yellow-orange, two colors that complete each other.

The photograph in this print was shot in New York and was first published in February 2017.

The photography is a panorama created out of 17 photographs shot independently with the technique of ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) and subsequently stitched together.

This photography is arguably the first (and up to this time the only) ICM panorama (Intentional Camera Movement Panorama) existing in the world. This makes you the collector of a unique photograph created using a unique technique.

This photograph is the first in a series about memories and how they make us who we are. I believe our life is intertwined with our memories and I would go as far as saying that memories are the most important element of our psyche and what gives us authenticity and a personal vision.

The blur created with the ICM technique that I used as an artistic tool in this image symbolizes the way we remember things, which is always as in a blurry dream. This blur also suggests the idea that there are places that we are so familiar with due to them being worldwide icons, like the view in this image – the New York skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge, that we may even have the impression that we have seen this place in reality and we remember it, even if we never saw it for real. This impressionistic style image suggests a possible way that we may imagine these places – in the same way we think about a memory, as a general idea but without being able to pinpoint all the details.

This image is the continuation of a series of duo-chromatic experiments in blue that started around 2013 it. Except for black and white photography, my main genre, here I am experimenting with something new. I think the spirit of black and white photography is more than just about the actual use of black and white but it is something deeper. It has to do with light and not only with color or the lack of it. This is what I’m studying in this duo chromatic blue series.

In this series, I am trying to re-create the spirit of black and white and the emotion it creates, but not by actually using black and white but by using other duo chromatic combinations. One of the reasons I research this in my work is to show that it is not the technique or color range that creates the emotion in art but it is the deeper meaning and the understanding of how to connect with the viewer on more basic intuitive levels, by offering the mind and heart a different look on things.

I was always fascinated by the dialogue between two colors and how some colors are able to communicate with each other so powerfully. There is an entire theory as to why this is happening and I’m building on that through working on this ongoing series.

The image was created in the personal style of the artist, called by the artist (en)Visionography™, and it was executed with her signature processing method, Photography Drawing™.

About the Artist

Award-winning photographer exhibited internationally, architect, author, and educator, winner of more than 80 prestigious international awards and distinctions, Julia Anna Gospodarou is the founder of (en)Visionography™. (en)Visionography is the artistic concept and the 21st Century fine art movement that aims to define a new way of creating fine art photography in the digital age, based on the vision of the artist and their own life experiences and emotion, rather than on depicting the actual subject or the conventions of traditional photography.

“I consider Julia’s (en)Visionography and Photography Drawing the most important innovation in black and white photography since the invention of Ansel Adam’s Zone System.” – George DeWolfe

Artist Statement

“I am 100% dedicated to creating the highest quality photographs possible, both in technical terms and in terms of investing my whole creativity, energy, belief, my entire life, and all my personal experiences into making an image that triggers to the viewer the same emotion I invest into creating it.

When you acquire one of my photographs, you acquire a part of my own self, a piece of my soul.

Every photograph I create is highly personal and is related to a special moment or experience in my life, that gave birth to a strong emotion of which the photograph is the translation into the language of image. I express myself through photographs. I articulate my feelings, my happiness, or sadness through the images I create. I transform every image I capture into the finished work starting from the emotion that created it and every photograph is my message about life to the world.

I believe making art as an artist, as well as collecting and experiencing art as a collector is the highest form of artistic happiness, it is what brings mindfulness into our lives and helps us experience every moment we live at its highest intensity. In other words, it makes us live longer.”

 About the Print Quality and Process

Julia Anna Gospodarou’s prints provide a state-of-the-art museum print quality and can be found in some of the most prestigious private collections and public spaces worldwide.

The photograph is printed on the highest quality fine art paper, the only medium considered suitable for genuine fine photography by critics, i.e. Hannemühle Photo Rag Baryta paper or similar, either with the method of Piezography or on high-end Epson printers. This process ensures the smoothest tonal range, greatest detail and sharpness, and the highest print longevity possible today. The prints are created by some of the very few high-end award-winning monochrome printers in the world of fine art photography.

The finished prints have a longevity of more than 120 years when exhibited in proper conditions, being an excellent investment for many years to come.

After a certain limited edition is sold out, the image will not be printed anymore, so you will be owning one of the few high-end prints of this image existing in the world, together with other high-regarded collectors.

All limited edition prints are numbered, titled, dated, stamped with a unique handmade stamp, and hand signed by the artist. The prints come with a unique officially registered certificate of authenticity and are secured with a Hologram Security System applied on both the print and the certificate, to certify and preserve their authenticity.

The prints are available in several sizes, covering all space requirements, from home spaces to public spaces, including the largest size possible today for a fine art print, suitable for large spaces, high-end offices, hotels, galleries etc.

In case you need custom sizes please inquire.

The larger sizes are best for revealing the high amount of detail in the photographs. Flawless, abundant detail is one of the characteristics of Julia Ana Gospodarou’s signature style recognized internationally by collectors and critics.

About the Artist’s Creative Process

Every finished photograph is the outcome of tens or even hundreds of hours of work, of days and sometimes weeks of careful craftsmanship, of polishing every single detail and every trace of light, from capturing the image in the camera to advanced creative editing and high-quality printing.

The photographs are created by the artist entirely manually, without any automation or outside intervention, either in the process of capturing or during editing and printing. The artist makes a point of doing 100% of the work in creating the image herself. The result is that you will hold in your hands a unique piece of art that is nonreproducible, being 100% handmade, personal, and authentic.
