This ready to hang, gallery-wrapped art piece features a fall landscape with a Japanese tree. Photographer by passion
for years, Philippe took an immediate liking to photographing landscape and nature. Always in search of the best light
and the most original angle, he maintains a constant search for the most beautiful places surrounding him. Philippe
prides himself in understanding the complex interactions between light, weather, landscape, the tides, plants and
animals. He finds it is important to have a deep respect for this planet and its inhabitants. Philippe hopes that his
photography can bring people closer to nature and encourage them to preserve it for future generations. Giclee
(jee-clay) is an advanced printmaking process for creating high quality fine art reproductions. The attainable
excellence that Giclee printmaking affords makes the reproduction virtually indistinguishable from the original piece.
The result is wide acceptance of Giclee by galleries, museums, and private collectors. Gallery wrap is a method of
stretching an artist's canvas so that the canvas wraps around the sides and is secured a hidden, wooden frame. This
method of stretching and preparing a canvas allows for a frameless presentation of the finished painting.
