ABOUT THIS SERIES - HATS ON CAMERAS
"One day on set, a lonely camera needed a little pick me up, so I put a hat on it. This leads to the realization that there are many sad cameras out there without hats, so a series is born." — Alexander Lombardi
We only print on archival papers and surfaces, including silver halide photographic papers, museum-quality heavyweight rag papers, metal, acrylic, and wood.
Fuji Deep Matte Velvet is a luxurious, velvety smooth, acid-free, archival silver halide photographic paper with a non-reflective surface that creates gorgeous, detailed fine art images with rich, vivid colors that feel both muted and saturated at the same time.
Moab Somerset Museum Rag is an archival 100% cotton heavyweight 300gsm acid-free paper with an ultra-smooth surface and matte finish that produces deep, rich blacks and unparalleled color.
Our metal prints are made by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets, resulting in uniquely durable prints with vibrant colors, brilliant luminescence, and exceptional detail. The ultra-hard scratch-resistant surface is waterproof/weatherproof and can be cleaned easily — just avoid direct sunlight.
Handcrafted in California, our solid wood box frames are made of natural wood with a rich finish and grain that can vary slightly from frame to frame. They are available in black, white and natural basswood.
Decades ago, Alex Lombardi picked up a Canon AE-1 loaded with Ilford HP5 and took a photograph of a duck. The duck is surely dead by now, but Mr. Lombardi is still photographing. For now. His unique framing and perspective is highly informed by his deep, deep fear of social interaction. He currently lives in Dublin, Ireland, with his wife and daughter.
