Trying to figure out how to frame/display my prints for the upcoming exhibit, I am once again experimenting with Format Frames. This is a 12 x 16 inch one I bought at a ‘Big Box’ store for about $5.00. The traditional framer in me shudders about using cheap frames with no mat. However I have to take into consideration the significant cost I would incur if I framed a couple of dozen prints the way I used to, and be stuck with them once the exhibit closes. I actually like the slim profile of these frames and the fact that they come with real glass. One problem with them is that they are very fragile, and often I discover that they are damaged at the corners, after I get them home. It’s the kind of damage that is almost invisible while they are still in their shrink wrap. However, at this price, I can accept that. I don’t think there is enough space in the frame to exhibit a mounted and matted print. I will find out, I ordered one 16×20 frame to try and see if I can get it to accept my mounted/matted silver gelatin print photos. In the meantime, I am pretty happy with the look I get this way. By the way, I cut a piece of 13×19 inkjet paper to 12×16 inches prior to printing this photo of my friend Diana pulling a bag of clams from her lease.
