Summer Float is shot with film and has a painterly quality to the image. "Summer Float is one of my favorite moments in time. It's the woman I love with her younger sister on a summer day outside of Santa Barbara. I had to convince them to make the cold long swim through the pacific to get what I knew would be a great visual moment. I swam out with an old Nikonos and shot what was left of a roll of 35mm film on the float. This one caught my eye because of the languid, soft nature to the poses of the bodies and the glassy look on the water. It almost looks like a painting, but its definitely not."-Josh Soskin
"I love photography, especially shooting on 35mm film because it's a chance for me to escape the world of motion picture filmmaking and isolate one frame in time. With film I can spontaneously capture it and then let it go, only to find out the results weeks later. There's something magical about that process and the look and feel of a medium that's chemical as opposed to digital. I try and find moments and images that tell stories, that tap into something larger than the image itself."- Josh Soskin

Choose from our high-end white, black or natural frames, or opt for a more modern look by selecting facemounted to thick Plexiglas.
All frames include:
- UV-blocking acrylic glass, which protects against 91% of UV rays.
- Acid-free, archival mats and materials.
- Taped backs to prevent dust from getting into the frame.
- Strainers on the back to reinforce the structure of the frame.
- Wire on the back of the frame for easy installation.
- Facemounted works are hung on a metal French cleat. Installation instructions are included in the packaging.
Extra small and small frames have .75" molding 2" mats, and are 1.2" deep. Medium and large frames have 1" molding, 3" mats and are 2" deep. Mattless frames have a spacer to prevent the print from touching the acrylic.
We do not frame the extra large print sizes because they are too large to ship without risking damage.
