Ancient door Beijing China

I love to photograph unusual doors, and exploring the Forbidden City proved rewarding. The brightly colored red doors have a wonderful texture from centuries of decay.

The Forbidden City is located in Beijing, China. The imperial palace dates from the Ming dynasty to the end of the Qing dynasty (1420 to 1912). It was the home of Chinese emperors. The Forbidden City is also the ceremonial and political center of the Chinese government for almost 500 years. The famous historical complex consists of 980 buildings and over 180 acres.

Forbidden City Architecture

The Forbidden city exemplifies traditional Chinese palatial architecture. This style has influenced cultural and architectural developments in the far east for hundreds of years.  

The palace is known to contain the most extensive collection of preserved ancient wooden structures in the world. The unique red door in the Urban Fine-Art Photographic print is an example of these old wooden structures. UNESCO declared the palace a World Heritage Site in 1987.

As the creator, I personally print, sign, and package every print at my studio in Haliburton, Ontario. These prints are then shipped worldwide via Canada Post free of charge. Therefore, delivery times can vary based on location, anywhere from a few days to several weeks.

Additionally, when traveling and shooting on location, orders placed during these periods will be dispatched upon my return. This may result in delivery times extending to several weeks. However, rest assured that the wait for these unique pieces is well worth it!
