Root-Encrusted Fortress Door - Black and White Fine Art Print

In the heart of Havana, Cuba, I found myself drawn to a sight that seemed to tell a tale as old as time itself. A door, once an entrance to the Fortress of San Carlos de la Cabana, now stands closed off by a cement wall, a silent sentinel bearing witness to the passing of centuries.

A spectacle of nature's resilience and unyielding force unfolds as massive tree roots seize control of the fort wall. This scene, reminiscent of dark fantasy, features these roots, almost as if they were the arms of a leviathan, grasping and twisting around the once formidable doorway. In stark contrast, the door seems minuscule, lost amidst this natural spectacle.

This image is not merely a photograph; it's a testament to the relentless march of nature and its capacity to reclaim and reshape what man has built. The monochrome palette focuses on the details; the tree roots and the wall come alive in a dance of shadow and light, creating a sense of depth and dimension.

As a photographer, my hand gently etches a signature on the reverse of each print, a personal touch that adds to the piece's authenticity. These prints are produced on acid-free 100% cotton paper, a medium that ensures the integrity of the image for years to come. The inks used are archival, guaranteeing a lifetime of sharp contrasts, smooth gradients, and rich colors that never fade.

Delivered globally, these museum-grade prints come with the promise of satisfaction or the option of a full refund within 14 days. In addition, each print includes a certificate of authenticity and a lifetime warranty against fading, underscoring the piece's quality. While the image is yours to cherish, the frame is not included in your purchase.
