Esmee as me, Me vs Others, 2018
|Paper Size||53 × 80 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.
Ask us should you need help or clarification. And please double check your (c)art to ensure your choices are correct.

This is a portrait of my friend Esmee posing as myself with spring flowers in my studio. “Me vs Others” is a photographic experiment that seeks to explore the nature of curated selfhood and self-representation in the 21st century. It is a series of self-portraits through the bodies of others. I started posting these images online as a visual trick, to make viewers believe they were looking at pictures of me when really, they were not. Soon, I was on a quest to explore every possible self: everyone I have been, or could have been – a world of endless possibilities. This project plays with photography as a space where what is staged and what is not gets blurred; a space where we assume what we see to be real. This project was featured as the cover of the 2018 Vice Photo Issue. It has also been featured in media outlets such as Bomb Magazine, Dazed, and Broadly. It was exhibited as a solo exhibition at The Letter Bet in Montreal in 2019, and will be published as a monograph with Editions Lemaitre in Paris in 2019.
