"Sometimes serendipity prevails where planning fails. I found the elements in A Wake at Dawn, the pier and boats, a couple of days previous to the actual photograph. I had previsualized them in perfectly calm water. Arriving at the location one hour before sunrise, I set up my tripod in the dark, composed the image and waited for dawn’s light. To my disappointment, just at the critical moment, when the light was just right, an early rising fisherman cruised by me in his powerboat. I knew the disturbed water would ruin the photograph I had envisioned. However, as each wake rolled by, I noticed the graphic lines they created and the graceful rocking of the floating boats. Using motion to paint the film, I set a slow shutter speed (¾ second), and took one shot. To my delight, a perceived futile experiment became one of my favorite images."                                                                                                                          Jon Vaughan. Photographer

Processes and Materials

This photograph is dry-mounted and personally hand signed by Jon Vaughan on the back, including the title, location and time of year. It is an open edition print on archival pulp paper with archival pigment inks. Please treat it with the same care you would give to watercolor art - framed behind glass and protected from direct sunlight and excessive humidity. The print is permanently dry mounted on acid-free foam board. Then an acid and lignin free mat (Crescent Select - White Sands) is custom cut and museum hinged to the mounting board. The finished piece is protected in a custom sleeve of high clarity archival Mylar film. All of the mounting, matting and framing is done at Yankee Ingenuity. Bob Korn, of Bob Korn Imaging, printed this image, as well as all of Jon Vaughan's images since 1981.
