JAMES VENUTI
is a photographer and woodworker based in New York City
specializing in architectural and cityscape photography. Taking advantage of his talent in wood working, he began carving custom frames for his photographs, creating one of a kind works of art. 
 The culmination of James' vision and hard work comes to fruition in his series "Living Frames", which is a collection of his most popular photographs infused into aluminum and mounted onto an
intricately designed mixed media platform. The aluminum brings sharper color, detail and durability to the scene while the hardwood frames,

hand-carved and painted by the artist himself, expand on a
specific mood expressed in the photograph. Each piece brings a unique vision to these captured moments and is one of a kind.
