An archival silver gelatin print on resin coated paper by wildlife photographer and autism activist, Alfie Bowen.

Capturing the gorgeous Grevy species of Zebra with their visually-arresting stripes, this bold and hypnotising photograph by Alfie Bowen would make a perfect focal piece in any space. Printed with silver gelatin on resin coated paper to achieve sharper definition and 'truer' tones of black and white, the beautiful contrasts in this hand-signed limited edition artwork are also complemented by the bespoke charcoal pine and spruce frame.

For nature photographer and environmental activist Alfie Bowen, the world was a scary place when he was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder at a young age. Despite the many challenges he faced throughout his life, he discovered his passion for animals and photography and launched his first signed limited edition collection with Castle Fine Art in 2021; discover the collection here). This stunning second collection accompanies the release of his own book where he discusses how his autism has helped him in his career and features foreword by world-renowned naturalist, photographer and TV presenter Chris Packham.#

Developed in the 19th century, silver gelatin prints are one of the oldest and most effective photography printing techniques used across history and the world. The intricate details of Alfie's black and white photographs are perfectly captured and translated from the his camera to paper via this technique. The luxurious print allows the whites to be crispier and the blacks darker, enhancing the  entire appearance of the photograph greater than any other standard print would allow. Combined with the bespoke black pine and spruce frame, this limited edition photograph is truly a work of art.
