Place Portraits

A Place Portrait is a composite of 12 to 18 photographs mounted by hand onto white museum board that shows the details of a home, stage set, work place, library, Grand Central Station, the Grand Canyon or any other Place.

The majority of Archer’s Place Portraits are commissions.  She creates 2 to 25 Place Portraits after photographing a home or place, depending on how many rooms are photographed and if the clients wants gardens, landscaping, etc., included.  She mounts each of the photographs onto white museum board by hand.  Photographing the place takes her from one to 5 hours; she shoots with natural and available light; little preparation is needed.
