Julian Calverley - North Northwest Beginnings
A collection of personal landscapes made in the North Northwest of Scotland. An ongoing personal project started in 2005.
Julian's fascination and connection with the landscape, British locations in particular, dates back to when he was a young boy, with numerous family trips spent wild camping in and around the Scottish Highlands and Western Isles.
These everlasting memories help to provide a deep affinity with the wild, grand open spaces of the British Isles.
Preferring the qualities of autumn and winter light, Julian often works before dawn and after dusk.
In all weathers, he captures the atmosphere of the scenes before him, often returning to the same remote locations time and time again.
Landscapes can look so different, almost unrecognisable, from one moment to the next that Julian considers it vital to experience them in their varying weather conditions and sea states.
His tenacity in revisiting these locations enables the apparent orchestration of truly unique moments.
In those moments, when the grandeur of the landscape combines unpredictably with the elements, the stage is set and Julian feels huge excitement in connecting with his surroundings.
Increased demand for his personal landscape pieces has spurred Julian to make this work available in the form of editioned Large Format Archival Pigment Prints
His beautiful Archival Pigment Prints are made by master printer, Jack Lowe
, who works from his studio in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Jack Lowe's wealth of experience ensures that every ounce of quality is expertly obtained from the Archival Pigment Printing process (sometimes referred to as Giclée).
Laying the HP Vivera Pigment ink onto Hahnemühle Bamboo 290gsm — a beautifully natural, heavy paper — makes for a sensational visual experience.
Permanent for more than 250 years under normal display conditions, each print is personally inspected by Julian before being catalogued, signed, numbered and embossed.
