I first encountered the work produced by Alphabet Photography when I saw one of their pieces displayed in my friend’s home.
I was immediately struck by the beauty of combining letters with a basis in architectural works to make a word that is also a striking image! I was doubly pleased when I learned that Alphabet Photography is a Canadian-based company because I’m always interested in supporting Canadian companies and artists!
Based in Niagara Falls, Ontario, I love the fact that this company is a family endeavour. According to their website, “Alphabet® Photography is the work of Jennifer Blakeley. Jennifer and her husband Sam run the business together, along with other members of their close-knit team…Jennifer spent a large part of 2006/2007 travelling Canada with only one goal in mind; to collect a complete gallery of photos that look like letters of the English Alphabet. All of her photos are of objects found in their natural surroundings that are un-staged and not found in any pre-existing signage.”
I was drawn to the combination of letters and the inspirational quotes that are chosen to match these words in their Inspirational Collection. I also think it is cool that you can create your own words and that there are options available for people who love these products but are on a budget. You can get calendars and posters too!
I received a depiction of the word LOVE. It was beautifully mounted because it is both attractive visually but also has a sturdy construction so I don’t have to worry that it will be easily damaged.
I absolutely love this piece! My home has a modern and minimalist design to it, so I don’t have many accent pieces in my home. This piece has become a focal point in our livingroom and I have found that it compliments the minimalist decor! I also appreciate, however, that it can work with other home decors. I suggested Alphabet Photography to a friend because she has a period home and I think that the nature of these designs would also match her period features beautifully! Overall, these designs are striking and versatile!
I would highly recommend Alphabet Photography pieces because I think that they are versatile, are high quality and reasonably priced as well – a truly winning combination!
