Working as a magazine stylist, Emma O’Meara was always on the hunt for the next big thing. Finding the photography of Jason Furnari through a friend, she soon began using his fine art prints for editorial shoots, and then, came the idea for a collaboration.
“We both have a shared love of photography and interiors,” explains Emma. “So we immediately bonded over the idea of creating a beautiful selection of prints to sell.” So, rather than just talk about it, they did just that!
Starting online photography store, Our Print Collection, just last month, the duo offer a range of both framed and unframed fine art prints. With Emma curating the collection and Jason the lead photographer, their body of work is unique, contemporary and beautifully presented, ready to be hung on the wall.
A cohesive range of 32 images, many of the photographs are from Jason’s personal collection, a body of work he’s been creating for some 20 years! “I have worked as an editorial and commercial photographer for decades and have been lucky to travel extensively throughout my career. On my days off while on jobs I always took time to shoot for my personal collection, so I’m excited to finally share this work.”
With images of water and the coastline prevalent, as well as a handful of aspirational travel images, all the photographs share that same sense of emotion. “It was important to us that we curated a set of evocative images that we could picture on our own walls,” says Jason. “The images resonate with us, they evoke a feeling, reflect a moment in time or visually they may just be an interesting place to be.”
However, beautiful images aside, Our Print Collection stands out from the crowd for another reason, with Emma’s background giving the business a unique edge. “Working as an interior stylist gives me good insight into what is on trend with both art and things like frame styles. I like creating images for our website that show how our collection might look in your home and I think this helps the buyer to picture how our prints can work in different settings.”
Offering three products: unframed prints, shadow line framed prints and traditionally framed prints, they came in two sizes and three finishes. All the art is printed, framed, packaged and delivered from Barwon Heads, Victoria and shipped Australia wide.
