This exceptionally beautiful photo which I named “The Creation of Cosmos”, refers to the legendary work of Michelangelo: “The Creation of Adam”.
It is amazing how many well-known shapes can be found in the seemingly random structure of the cosmos. Let it be my humble tribute to the masterpiece known from the wonderful Sistine Chapel, which you will soon be able to hang on your wall.
The picture shows the object named by the cosmic reference number NGC 6188. It is an emission and reflection nebula located in the constellation Ara, about 4,000 light-years from Earth. It was discovered on April 15, 1836 by John Herschel.
The NGC 6188 nebula has dark shapes that cut through bright areas extending over tens of light years. Established in this area just a few million years ago, the Ara OB1 association consists of massive young stars carving fantastic shapes thanks to the power of stellar winds and ultraviolet radiation. The next generation of new stars arises as a result of star winds and supernova explosions from previous generations of massive stars and condensed molecular gas.
I took the picture in a deserted and very dark location of South Africa.
Art-gallery quality without compromise
This fine art is printed at my home print studio in the highest possible quality with an expanded color gamut (Epson UltraChrome HDX 11 base colors) on a specially preselected paper. I only use print media recommended by world-class photographers, mainly Epson Signature Worth series (Fine-Art Photography: Exhibition Fiber; Poster: Premium Luster Photo Paper), which provide a very inspiring experience both aesthetic and tactile. The entire printing and production process is carried out by me personally. This guarantees the quality of presentation unattainable for other printing methods. This is the level found in the most prestigious photographic art galleries in the world. You will be delighted – I promise.
The rich blacks combined with the incredible color fidelity reinforces the aesthetics of the dark and deep cosmos in my photographs. Additionally, the Signature Worth and Legacy paper surface allows viewers to experience every detail in the prints.
A masterpiece that will last for many generations
The most advanced printing technology (created in Japan by Epson) which I decided to use, combined with special, highest quality archival papers, provide for the remarkable durability of these printed photographs. These Fine Art prints will survive many generations on your wall. According to the prestigious Wilhelm Imaging Research organization, the longevity of such prints reaches even several hundred years (Poster variant up to 175 years when it’s kept behind the UV glass). In order to reflect my commitment and personal relationship with photography, each copy of Fine-Art Photography is personally signed by me, which complements the unique character.
The Fine Art print is delivered in a secure container in the form of a tube. All photopaper prints will be rolled in acid free tissue, shipped in heavy duty cardboard document tubes. This guarantees its safety and preserves the quality of prints during transport to your home.
