PRINT SIZE: 24” x 516” A water tower is an elevated structure supporting a water tank constructed at a height sufficient to pressurise a water supply system for the distribution of potable water, and to provide emergency storage for fire protection. In some places, the term standpipe is used interchangeably to refer to a water tower, especially one with tall and narrow proportions. Water towers often operate in conjunction with underground or surface service reservoirs, which store treated water close to where it will be used. Other types of water towers may only store raw (non-potable) water for fire protection or industrial purposes, and may not necessarily be connected to a public water supply. Water towers are able to supply water even during power outages, because they rely on hydrostatic pressure produced by elevation of water (due to gravity) to push the water into domestic and industrial water distribution systems; however, they cannot supply the water for a long time without power, because a pump is typically required to refill the tower. A water tower also serves as a reservoir to help with water needs during peak usage times. The water level in the tower typically falls during the peak usage hours of the day, and then a pump fills it back up during the night. This process also keeps the water from freezing in cold weather, since the tower is constantly being drained and refilled. Hahnemühle’s artists paper quality is unparalleled and authentic. The German company has knowledge of paper making since the 1880’s and is the Industries gold Standard. Epson UltraChrome HDR pigment ink merges traditional archival ink quality with the latest high end technology. Hahnemühle Photo Rag Ultra Smooth 305gsm is made of 100% Cotton. This paper is extremely age resistant and has an ultra-smooth surface texture. Its premium inkjet coating allows for a large colour gamut and brilliant contrasts. The smooth surface makes it ideal for fine art photography, art reproduction and digital art in colour and black-and-white. Photo Rag Ultra Smooth is optimised for the latest generation of large format printers - especially for large prints.   This fine art print will meet museum longevity requirements and has a unique extra contrasty surface with a sensual feel. The print has a total of twelve different inks, ensuring that even the minutest details are visible, and the colours appear freshly printed even after 100 years. This art paper base offers a unique "touch and feel" experience - the Hahnemuhle typical 4th dimension. It is the artist's preference to use traditional negative film and mechanical cameras. The film is hand developed and scanned by the artist, prior to creating the art work. Photographic based artist Jonathan Talks produces original artwork in his Nottingham studio.
