George is a local artist, living in the nearby Hollywood Hills. This series of photographs captures the full moon rising behind Griffith Observatory. 

No “photoshopping” has been done here, no compositing – rather, through careful planning, George figures out the right place to set his camera each evening in order to capture in his viewfinder the images you see here.  Choosing locations far from the Observatory – often well over a mile (or over 2 kilometers) – and using long telephoto lenses – creates the perspective of the Observatory seemingly dwarfed by the moon.

These fine-art photographs are individually printed and then mounted on foamcore using archival-quality materials, matted with hand-cut white-core black mats, and signed by the artist.  Technical details are provided on the reverse of each print.

Size: 14.25" x 10.75"
