Because your poster collection doesn't constitute "fine art" no matter how sick Anna Nicole Smith looks in those jeans, Lux Archive's a new online market peddling signed, ltd-ed, "museum-quality" photo prints for every budget, all meticulously selected by "established" photogs for their "good looks and great personality" (the prints, that is...the photogs are probably mad busted). A sampling:
Aldeyjarfoss: This 5min exposure of a frozen Icelandic waterfall entailed trekking through rough terrain that once served as a training ground for NASA's lunar mission astronauts, so it was probably used to people talking about...(sigh)...say, cheese.
Untitled Explosion #LE-CN04-18: This photo, which required special effects vets to produce controlled explosions in NZ, explores the "ultimate inevitability of death", and "risk, terror, beauty, and the sublime", as death is far more inevitable for people who set off explosions in The Wrong Way.
Harmony: From a "Pony Pin-Up" series that takes "dressing up animals to an extreme", this is for the connoisseur who wishes more horses looked like Rick James, a man who persevered for years in spite of constantly getting mad busted.
