Our plans to decorate tourism properties throughout the South Pacific with my photographs have born early fruit, with our first order to supply large photographic prints for a luxury wilderness lodge in Papua New Guinea.
The lodge – Rondon Ridge – is the flagship property of Trans Niugini Tours – Papua New Guinea’s largest tour operator. We are looking at providing similar prints to each of their seven properties.
Two, 3 metre x 3 metre, canvas prints have been hung in the venue’s public space (above), and 16 large, framed prints will decorate each of the venue’s new rooms.
Each of the prints, which are featured in my coffee table book Tribal PNG, has been signed and registered for authenticity as part of a 25 print limited edition (http://www.kirklandphotos.com/portfolio/14-destination-asia).
We are currently working with the operator to build an on-line platform so their guests can order the prints and have them waiting by the time they return home.
Our intention is to work with just one property or operator in each of the South Pacific countries I photograph to provide an exclusive collection of limited edition, fine art prints featuring the destination’s traditional culture.
