Design Museum - John Pawson
Since acquiring his first digital camera, the architect John Pawson has amassed over a quarter of a million images. Collectively these snapshots form a monumental visual diary and body of reference material, logging both the ordinary and the extraordinary — places, buildings, landscapes, objects and moments — with equal thoroughness. John Jones were pleased to frame a small selection of Pawson’s photographs for display in the ground floor of the Design Museum in London.
Each work has been secured to a 100% pure cotton mount board, secured within a simple, slim square profile wooden frame design. These frames have been with finished with a bright, crisp, white spray, selected to present Pawson’s bold images to their full potential. Photographic prints are particularly vulnerable to the damaging effcts of ultra violet light rays present in natural and electric lighting. To combat this danger, each work has been glazed with uv filtered optium glazing, which also contains a low glare coating to reduce the level of reflections.
