Shack Time

Maximum quantity available reached.

Provincelands in October

"At the end of Snail Road, a forty five minute hike in soft sand through the Province Lands, is the dune shack named Margo/Gelb. It is a slant roofed box, resembling a clothes hamper in shape with four cobbled together windows and a single door facing the northeast. Two ancient folding chairs, behind an old plank table fixed to the wall, face a large window with an ocean view. It only takes a couple of days of shack dwelling to discover that “shack time” is not a measurement in minutes passed but rather in moments enjoyed. The only way to photograph this setting, due to the extreme difference in light intensity between the inside of the shack and the outside view, was to expose the two environments separately on the same frame of film. I accomplished this by placing black paper over all the window panes and exposed the inside of the shack with a slow shutter speed. Then I removed the paper, cocked the camera without advancing the film and exposed the outside with a fast shutter speed to accurately balance the light between the inside and outside. Look at the image called “Peaked Hills” to see the location of this shack on the last ridge just before the ocean." -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

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.
