Our customer Chris travelled for a month in Peru, and while traveling visited Lake Titicaca. Besides the very amusing name, the lake is the highest in the world and has some really amazing cultures still living on the lake. He visited one of the floating islands and took this fantastic shot of the women greeting his boat. Fast forward a couple of months, and he spotted a travel photo competition in the New York Times. He submitted his photo and was one of only four people selected! Awesome. We preserved the actual newspaper with the headline, text, and image behind museum quality glass. It was a little tough finding a mat that would match the colors of the picture but not make the newspaper look too yellow. We finally picked out this cool brown suede mat which we contrasted wth the darker frame inset with gold. Nice!
"I was concerned since the newspaper was turning yellow, but now I know my only published picture is going to be preserved forever. I love the suede mat." --Chris
