Chatham Light

Maximum quantity available reached.

Chatham in April

"For a landscape photographer strong winds are your worst enemy. Avoiding blurred images due to motion, especially at slow shutter speeds is mandatory. On this particular day the wind was a steady 35 miles per hour with substantial gusts (Note the storm warning flag to the right of the lighthouse). The clouds were literally stretched by the velocity of the winds. Since I was using a heavy telephoto lens and a slow shutter speed, I needed a high enough perch on Morris Island that allowed me to use my tripod without extending the legs. Even then I had to weight it with a cinder block that I keep in the car for such occasions. I made the scale of the lighthouse very small to accentuate its tenacity and tenuousness in relation to the power of wind and water."                                                                                                                   -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.
