Big Picture

Kevin Van Aeist’s photograph, Left Ring Finger, from his Fingerprints series, was created with the help of actual mustard and a slice of bread. Part of the Flash Forward Festival in Toronto showcasing photography’s future, Van Aeist’s work was a winner in the Flash Forward 2010 competition. His work also regularly appears on Eye Buy Art (eyebuyart.com), an online art gallery for emerging photographers and Flash Forward’s sister organization.

Designed to “make art affordable so more people can buy it,” Eye Buy Art makes editioned prints available in sizes up to 30 x 40 inches. Digitizing is done by the artist, and Eye Buy Art outsources the print work to Colourgenics which uses its Océ LightJet for output onto Fujifilm Fujicolor Crystal Archive media.
