I'll be hosting and performing at this New Year's Eve concert against the backdrop of an amazing fireworks show on ABC Australia at the Sydney Opera House. All concert proceeds will go to support music education in schools. https://ab.co/nyetb Photo Credit: Sydney Morning Herald
Making and mailing “The Luckiest” print has become a big part of my holiday season. Prints strewn around the apartment to dry, the kids boxing and running them to the post office in a (borrowed, I swear) shopping cart. Me, donning white gloves – just like Michael Jackson did – at the dinner table with a bottle of scotch Many ask for personalized messages on the print. I’ve been reluctant to do this because matching personalized prints with mailers can more easily get effed up and I want your prints arriving in time for Christmas. That said, this year I’m bringing in some extra help and giving it a shot. There is an option to get “The Luckiest” print with a 40-character personalized message in my somewhat legible handwriting. When I run out of time, that’s the “Limited Edition” part and that option will disappear. Dec. 7th cut off for orders in time for Christmas. These are artist signed fine art prints, not posters. I’ve been photographing and printing most of my life and can’t stand a badly reproduced image. These are museum quality and archival down to my favorite pen for signing. Cheerio and Happy Holidays! www.benfoldsphotography.com/luckiest
