Framing is something that I had not given a great deal of thought towards until the last couple of months. There is an array of decisions to be made - and when the price is high you want to know what is best!
There was a huge choice of frame materials and colours. Also the option of a window mount which I believe lends itself to certain projects. The mount gives the photograph space and a presence. The eyes are drawn from corner to corner with nothing partially obscured in corners of wood and glass.
I chose an oak frame with a white window mount. The photograph is relatively small at 12'x12' which suits the personal nature of the project. The oak frame is reminiscent of those in our own home, however, this is actually oak not MDF.
