john murphy

by Grace Bonney

based in philadelphia, john murphy is the artist behind the multidisciplinary design studio, john murphy projects. for the past four years, john has been creating these beautiful photography series using colorful hand-finished frames and images he photographs himself. john’s exhibited in galleries, showrooms and fairs (including minima in philly) but now he’s launched his own shop to sell these gorgeous photographs. ranging from $150 to $1600 for unique and limited editions, john’s work is truly a feast for the eyes. i’m still trying to decide which glossy handmade frame i love the most, not to mention the lovely archival pigment prints. you can view and shop john’s full range of prints right here– enjoy! [thanks, john!]
