Look! Enrique's Framed Photos

Back in August we posted a photo on Etsy Scavenger. Several readers purchased copies. Longtime AT reader and AT:LA team member Enrique wrote to us last night: "Just wanted to send a follow-up now that my "Apartment Block" photograph is framed. Actually, I ended up falling in love with Mark Wallace's work. So I contacted him directly to make up prints of additional images I had found on his website. I've purchased a total of 10 photographs (4 have arrived--one of which was a gift--and 6 have just been dispatched)." [See more from Enrique below the jump.]

"Pictured are the first 3 photographs in their frames. I purchased the $8 frames from IKEA and took them to a framer to get the photos float-mounted. Since using Japanese hinges (apparently the preferred method for float-mounting) is a pricey option, my framer (Beverly Hills & West Hollywood Framers in L.A.) cheated the look by mounting the photos on thick archival stock that was cut smaller than the image (using non-acidic tape as adhesive) and mounting that board onto a full-frame backing. The simple white frame and background really make the colors of the photos pop, especially since the images are printed on metallic photographic paper." Here's the unframed photo:

Thanks, Enrique! (Anyone else want to show us their framing?)
