Acid free archival mountboard.

A striking black and white composition of a fern leaf lit by sunlight. The smooth reflective surface contrasts beautifully with the deep shadows, accentuating the almost perfect symmetry of the fronds.

This image was captured with an analogue camera using traditional film which adds depth and a soft graininess, making it even more unique.
