Great Point Light

Maximum quantity available reached.
Nantucket in October "Exactly 200 years after it was built, Great Point Light was toppled during a severe storm in 1984. I took this photograph in 1988, two years after it was rebuilt. My wife and I spent a week on Nantucket photographing in some of the nastiest weather we had ever seen – extremely strong winds everyday. We rented a jeep and traveled the seven miles along the sandy shore where I set up for a possible sunset picture. To my amazement, the sun peaked out of heavy clouds just above the horizon. I photographed the horizontal shaft of sunlight on the lighthouse which strikingly defined its stony structure. Then, four minutes later I photographed the sunset." -Jon Vaughan, Photographer Fine Art Photograph by Jon Vaughan, dry mounted on acid-free foam board, custom cut and hinged on an acid-free matte.

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.
