A Framed Family

by | Nov 12, 2018 | 0 comments

So this is that face you make when you see a dream come to reality. To our left is a masterfully restored photo of my Father and Grandmother in a Displaced Persons Camp around 1948. On the right you’ll see the original photo. (You can click on either of the photos to see the enlarged comparison of restoration/retouching.)  Coming from a family of Ukrainian and Italian immigrants from the last century, it’s photos and moments like these that are a paramount to be displayed. With this photo being the last print from our dear friend Chuck Bogana of Color One, and framed by the fabulous concierge Frame Master himself, Rob O’Donnell, needless to say, this photo has an abundance of value to me personally.

In today’s world what I think we forget is that someday the photos that we take now will be the art hanging on future generation’s walls. Our children, grandchildren, our business’s legacy and so on. That’s right, I said it, Art. Capital A. Whether you’ve been following and reading for years, or are just recently acquainted with my studio, we’re more than just a portrait/headshot studio. When you walk into our shop you’ll find the gallery of printed images framed on the wall sets the tone for the whole session. It’s a reminder of what’s to come, worthy of being displayed in a gallery. Whether it’s The MET/Whitney, the Boardroom, or the family mantle/fireplace, we at Karjaka Studios truly believe you are a work of Art, no different than any other gallery art or iconic heirloom.
