Michael Blann – Mountains
Michael Blann is a renowned commercial photographer, shooting for agencies and brands all over the world, however, he has always been deeply passionate about cycling. After his racing career in Australia ended he trained in printmaking and illustration and began his journey into the profession. Recently he married the two together for a new project and has been working closely with top cycling brands and publishers to bring to fruition his stunning photographic series ‘Mountains’ and the accompanying book ‘Mountains: Epic Cycling Climbs’. The body of work focuses on his own more personal, artistic brief photographing the most famous European climbs in the history of the sport. He captures (sometimes from the air) the epic natural landscape cut into by tarmac and engineering necessary to hold world renowned cycling events such as Tour de France and Giro d’Italia.
We have developed a working relationship with Michael over a few years, framing the majority of his works in white, spray finished solid wood box frames. The fine art quality Giclée prints are mounted on Kapamount before fitting to keep them rigid and the overall weight of the frame to a minimum. There are two framed examples of Blann’s work in the consultation area of our EC1 office gallery wall, come in and have a look!
