Alleys & Ruins no. 4, Orange Door (1993, Montreal, QC, 9:45pm)
My brother Rob and I are walking along an old industrial stretch of the Lachine canal in Montreal, lugging my photo gear. I find a shot and begin setting up.
I’m looking through the viewfinder when my brother whispers, “X, look behind you.”
I turn around and see a most bizarre and disturbing sight. Out of the darkness, a man has appeared and is crawling toward us very slowly. Around his mouth is a big gob of white foam, some of it is hanging off his chin. He crawls up to me and slowly rises to his knees. Then I see he’s gripping a bag of glue and I realize he’s totally high. He looks at me, wild eyed, and takes a long, deep breath through his nose, puffing out his chest, elbows bent and hands up like a gorilla.
I look at my brother and I see he’s ready to pounce on him if it comes to that. I motion toward the dark alley I’m shooting and I say to him, “Isn’t that the most beautiful thing you ever saw?” He looks at the alley for several seconds, perplexed, and lets his air out. His arms come down to his sides and he keeps looking at the alley. Then he gets back on his hands and knees and crawls away, disappearing back into the darkness.

Our unique and vibrant photographs will add depth and stunning color to any home, office or public space. They are offered in two main finishes
1. Metal float mount
Our Metal prints have a magical luminescence. Their vibrant, saturated colors jump off the wall, and will last for generations. They are created by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets making them incredibly durable and scratch resistant. The finished piece is float mounted, so they float one inch off the wall.
2. Archival prints
We print on premium quality Sunset eSatin paper, using archival Ultrachrome inks for incredible endurance and color saturation. These prints will last for generations.
11x14 and 16x20 sizes are available with or without a window mat. If you are unsure which is best for you, feel free to contact us. Most clients seem to purchase without the window mat.
Prints larger than 16X20 are available as full-frame prints, without a white border or a window mat. If you want a white border, just let us know!
If you have a specific size requirement, that's no problem! Maybe the perfect size is somewhere between two of the sizes in the drop down list. In that case, the price would be the proportional difference. We’ve also stretched and cropped pieces for customers to fit precise spaces. Give us the dimensions and we'll email you image options for you to choose from. There is no charge for the extra labor in custom sizing pieces.
Metal prints in the following sizes include a Certificate of Authenticity, which will be mailed to you:
48X65 or 48X72: edition of 15
43X57 or 40X60: edition of 25
32X40 or 30X45: edition of 50
24X30 or 22X33: edition of 100
16X20 or 16X24: edition of 200
We want you to be happy with your art purchase. If a piece arrives damaged or defective, please contact us and a replacement will be shipped. All of my finished pieces are created using the highest quality archival processes. They come with a lifetime guarantee against fading or color shift.
