Exxon poster, Classic New York series, 16" x 20", by Annette & Jon Fortt
From Annette Fortt:
"New York is a fascinating place, and I lived and worked in Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island. But I was drawn to the life and architecture of Brooklyn, especially Bedford-Stuyvesant, where I lived for six years.
"When I attended graduate school at Pratt in Clinton Hill, I took a daily drive to an historic old church that housed a nursery school where I left my toddler son. Then I crossed the street to the school where I would spend my days.
"I kept my camera beside me in the car. Sometimes I would snap pictures while I waited for a light or for the traffic to move. Sometimes, if the scene merited it, I’d park the car and step out to capture my image.
"Exxon was conceived from a scene at a gas station on Atlantic Avenue. You can tell from the size of the building in the background that it was a factory or warehouse that now houses expensive lofts."
The text in the background (by Jon Fortt) reads:
This poster was designed to highlight the period when it was created, and can be collected along with others in the Classic New York series.
The underlying work, Exxon, is also available as a framed print.
The poster arrives protected in a cardboard tube, packed with tissue paper to protect the piece inside. Unroll it on a clean flat surface, and hold down the corners to flatten.
These matte, museum-quality posters are printed on durable, archival paper.
The poster does not come with hanging clips; those shown in the photo are for display purposes only.
