Exhibition Framing: Larry Parkinson

We recently completed the framing of an exhibition by Melbourne print maker Larry Parkinson. Larry’s work is highly detailed and produced using multi plate wood blocks. The works on paper have been float mounted and framed with spacers in box white frames.

The show is currently being held at The Stockroom in Kyneton until September 8th. Please see for more information.

Max Dupain’s Sunbaker 1937

One of the most iconic Australian photographs of the 20th century is undoubtedly Max Dupain’s Sunbaker. Taken at Culburra Beach, NSW in 1937, the photograph was taken during his more artistic years before he delved into more commercial work and later became well known in the when it graced the poster of Max Dupain’s exhibition at the Australian Centre for Photography in 1975.

This limited edition print was produced by the estate of the photographer. Framed in a hand stained and polished Tasmanian oak gallery frame with an 8 ply matboard to space it from the glazing and subtly adding depth. Max-Dupain-Sunbaker-1937

Salon Des Ensembliers Poster

You may recognise the image on the left from channel 9′s The Block when Josh and Jenna renovated their kitchen.

Above we have framed a larger version of the poster for a client to show just how large and impressive this image is.

Framed in a gallery style thick box frame, dry mounted, matboard surrounding it and acrylic glazing, this stands at 2.2 metres high by 1.4 wide.

Medal framing

Here are some of the military service frames that were completed recently just prior to Anzac Day. The first is a contemporary take on a traditional design with white box frame and borders while the second combines warmer tones with a sepia photograph and an aged original telegram that has been encapsulated in Mylar. None of the items, including the pocket watch, were stuck on with adhesive, making everything in the frame reversible. Both frames feature UV blocking glass. Images were restored and printed on fine art paper. Have a look at conservation framing and military framing for more details on techniques, materials and design.

Fine art print photographs of Balwyn Melbourne in frames

Photographs of vintage Balwyn from the 1960s featured for the first time in Melbourne at Visual Heritage

Welcome to our new blog! We are thrilled to bring you updates on what’s going on here at Visual Heritage and fill the pages with photographs that will hopefully inspire you.

First up is a very exciting exhibition featuring our local suburb, Balwyn with photographs taken by Clive Enticott. These scanned and restored photographs from the 1960s are printed on fine art paper and show a very different street scene to what we have today. Featured in them are milk bars, shops, trams, cars and other local landmarks which have either changed hands or been knocked down for new developments, except a coffee shop, still open today.

Exhibition will be on until late April.
