John Jones frame Indre Serpytyte photographs for Tate Modern’s, Conflict, Time, Photography show
17 November 2014
Staged to coincide with the centenary of the First World War, Tate Modern is set to exhibit, Conflict, Time, Photography, in the Eyal Ofer Galleries, from 26th November – 15th March, in order to offer an alternative to familiar notions of war reportage. Curated by Simon Baker, Shoair Marlian and Professor David Mellor, the exhibition brings together photographers who have reflected on moments of conflict such as internationally acclaimed Don McCullin, Stephen Shore and Taryn Simon. John Jones was pleased to have framed the emotive photographs of Indre Serpytyte for this exhibition to museum standards.

John Jones Design Consultants chose to dry mount Indre Serpytyte’s silver gelatine prints onto 8ply cotton museum board. The prints were framed in a minimal square profile in a sturdy FSC regulated poplar wood and sprayed in three coats of grey paint to complement the photographs. The frames include many museum quality additions which have significant conservation benefits; Foil covers were added inside the frames between the artworks and the wooden surfaces to prevent acid migration, which may cause embrittlement and yellowing over time. The works were also glazed with UV protective Perspex to prevent colour fade from damaging light rays.
