The photo used to make up this print features 3 workers at a dai-paai-dong (a traditional and informal outdoor eatery) off Graham Street in Central, Hong Kong. This is another of those photos in which everything just seemed to come together in the right moment. It was the clanging of the wok that piqued my initial curiosity. Finding the cook crouched down and using the pavement as he pounded away at his wok to reshape it, struck me as both absurd and obtuse.But, this appealed to my sense of humour. The camera came up and I started framing and taking pictures. In the intervening moments, I noticed the dish washer to the right. And, in the next moment, the woman stepped into what is now this picture. I called this picture a “Wok and Basin” because, other than the moment, these two items are the key features in this image. I could have called it, “The Grimace” or “The Workers” or something equally inane. Thus, the “Wok and Basin” will have to do.
All prints offered for sale from this site are paper based. The prints are made using the Lambda C printing process, a process whereby a digital image is projected onto some form of chromogenic photo-sensitive media via three [RGB] laser beams. The media is then run through a wet chemical process to render the final print. We offer either a matt or glossy photo finish. Each print has a 1 centimetre white boarder around it. We do not offer framing or mounting.
At this time we do not offer prints using ink-jet printing technologies. Simply put, our digital workflow has been optimised to use Lambda C printing process technologies. Our printers use Fuji’s Photo Crystal papers. By archival standards, Fuji papers are on par with the best art papers used to make ink-jet prints. While we do not usually sign our prints, each print comes with its own signed Certificate of Authenticity.
