ModernGlyphs

The human experience was preserved in antiquity through rock carvings, found today in nearly every corner of the globe. Through contrast and contour, Artists of these carvings told stories of the present, Happenings

Of our past. We call these renderings petroglyphs.

 

today, photographers tell of the human experience via modern medium. Their camera the chisel, photographers uncover a world oft unseen, unique to the artist, fresh to the beholder. "Graphic Glyphs" tell today's stories IN vivid color, striking contrast, ebbing contour, and dimensional composition - each exposure, as diverse as our world, a carving in an otherwise unrendered slate.

 

our camera THE CHISEL, GraphiGlyphics etches, in a new kind of stone, the human experience.

It began at Joshua Tree, on desert plains that only SOARING ridges can contain. Scale was something altogether different, reimagined by unfamiliar, immeasurable distance. There was peace in feeling so small, juxtaposed against an expanse that welcomed us home.

We promised ourselves we would never leave, a promise we pretended for days until our lives came calling. As often as we revisited every detail of its memory, time would eventually bleach the once vivid allure. So, equipped with a modern chisel, we began to etch.  

 

Our glyphs come from all over the globe - from the intaglios of Blythe, California to the cloud forests of Monteverde, Costa Rica to the terraced mountainsides of Lao Cai, Vietnam. Like every journey, ours had an origin worthy of homage and preservation. That's why GraphiGlyphics commits 23% of our profit to the U.S. National Park Service. 

why 23%? the SIX kingdoms of life, NINE major biomes, SEVEN continents, and ONE earth we share represent our planet's vast and diverse community, the sum of which happens to be that of the 23 chromosomes in one genetic set of earth's most accountable steward - that's you! 

whether you're looking for the perfect print or just here for the view, make yourself at home and stay as long as you need to recharge your soul and refocus your mind. action begins and persists with mindfulness - the key to ensuring our planet stays perpetually robust and forever full of life.
