The White Shirts of an Art Dealer (Polaroid) London
|Paper Size||40 × 55 in|
While our recommended frame color and border or bleed choice is what we feel best complements the art and vision of the artist, by all means, choose a look that best complements your style and space.
Paper Size: Is based on Full Bleed and adding a border will change the aspect ratio, so paper size may adjust slightly smaller.
Glazing: To eliminate reflective glare, our biggest work (70″ to 80″ on the long side) is protected by an archival laminate in lieu of acrylic. Up to 60″ on the long side is protected by UV acrylic.
Border: If the framed image above is showing a white border, then clicking on Full Bleed will not show what full bleed looks like. We only show how a border will look. Your choice will appear on your order. The border on work up to 40″ x 60″ is about 2.5″ and about 3.5″ on our biggest work.
Frame Color: Clicking on Frame Color will not change the color of the frame, but your choice will appear on your order.
Frames: Our frames are custom made from robust solid wood Studio moulding, 2″ deep with a 3/4″ face width and joined at the corners with butterfly joints.
Orientation: Some work can be displayed either horizontal or vertical—should you wish to change orientation, please contact us and we’ll place the D-rings accordingly and confirm via email.
We print exclusively on Hahnemühle 100% Cotton Photo Rag Baryta paper and museum shadowbox frame in solid wood, Studio moulding handcrafted in a robust, contemporary profile preferred by galleries and museums worldwide.

I made a series of performance photographs called Avoided Spaces in London and performed the stories in each location using a large format camera. This Polaroid entitled “The White Shirts of an Art Dealer” describes an encounter with a high profile art dealer from New York who was slick and business orientated. One day the artist meets him on a back street in London looking meek with piles of his crumpled dirty white shirts that he wore as a professional. The image of him showed the vulnerability of both the real person and the stories behind the art market and how artists can get overlooked. This image is a performance made in that place.
