If this photograph appears reminiscent of a scene from Hemingway, consider it intentional. The subject of this portrait is Anselmo, the Cuban fisherman on whom the writer based the character of Santiago in The Old Man and the Sea. Even though it's a relatively tight shot, the image is all shadows. Two bottles of wine sit evocatively in the foreground, while all we see of the fisherman is a small sliver of his face. Leland Hayward's moody work appeared in the June 1, 1953, Vogue.

The premium giclée print is produced on thick (310 gsm), textured watercolor paper made from alpha cellulous wood pulp that is acid free. It shares the same vivid colors, accuracy, and exceptional resolution that make giclée prints the standard for museums and galleries around the world.
The premium photographic print is digitally printed on high-gloss premium photographic paper. The result is a unique silver pearlescent finish with stunning visual impact and depth, suitable for museum or gallery display.
The stretched canvas print is the result of sophisticated digital printing technology in which the image is printed directly onto an artist-grade, 100% cotton canvas. The canvas is then expertly stretched around 1.5" wooden bars and carefully finished with hand-painted edges. An acrylic coating protects the stunning giclée print from dust, moisture and fading. (Canvas may not be available for all prints.)
