Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.

Artist Statement

My day at the zoo was a flop. Arriving full of hope, I took lots of photos, but sadly none of them worked. I liked these Elephants, walking in line, but the background was messy and dull. So I decided to cheat, by creating a montage. Looking through my files, I found the perfect background - a snowscape taken close to home. The images were combined using Photoshop - which is how two Indian Elephants came to be walking through the snow in east London. - Richard Alton
