Burnt Sienna photographic collection

Over the last few months I have been working collaboratively with a photographer who wants a set of boxes to archive his life work. He was particularly interested in having Tibetan imagery or colours incorporated into the design as he has an ongoing relationship with this country and Buddhism.

On the spine of each box there is a strand of the Endless Knot – a common motif in Tibet. Each box combined together forms a complete Endless Knot when standing side-by-side. The number 108 is important in Tibetan Buddhism and is reflected in the design – there are 12 boxes which will have 9 photographs in each box. So every part adds up to a bigger whole!

These boxes are Solander or Clamshell boxes. This style has two inner boxes (one fits into the other) and both are encased by a hardback cover. The boxes make a lovely whooshing sound when shutting.
