Newport red sunset photo block

Photo Blocks

Photo blocks are small photography art pieces that are easily grouped in sets, requiring no additional framing and make a great gift idea.

These little gems radiate color and clarity and should not be confused with things like coasters. Photoblocks are made by photographer Alexander “Sandy” Nesbitt in his Newport, RI studio/workshop using his own photography and coating techniques refined over the last 25 years of producing fine art pieces involving mounted prints.  The blocks are beautifully printed on photo paper which exhibits amazing clarity making them much clearer, brighter, and neater than industrial inkjet prints done directly on wood.

Photographs mounted on plywood blocks – “photo blocks” at Blink Gallery
The Photo blocks are 5″ x 8″ and made from the finest 3/4″ thick baltic birch plywood. This is a very fine plywood with 13 layers. The images are then coated making them safe to touch and water resistant. They make an easy to handle item, perfect for a small wall space, shelf, or ledge or just the perfect sized gift.

The process has been honed over the last two years, and involves a really big printer (printing awesome photos), a super cool glue machine, the finest quality baltic birch plywood, and a finish coat of lacquer applied by hand. Of course, its much more technical than that…the point is, these are little mini art objects. Its explained with a little more finesse on our photo block page. […]
