The Seasons

Genesis Drop on Foundation by Daryl Scott Walker

A study of Lagangarbh hut through the seasons of Scotland, Autumn, Summer, and Winter. Each bringing its own uniqueness to the landscape of Glencoe valley.

This iconic landmark sits afoot the Buachaille Etive Mòr, and is one of the most photographed scenes in Scotland. So how do you be unique in an area visited by millions?

I had envisaged the Idea of studying a static subject across the seasons a few years. The process of capturing this series of images took a whole year. Returning to the same spot many times, using the same 85mm lens. During Autumn of 2019, Winter, and Summer of 2020.

The Seasons NFT comes with an Ultra-HD print, shipped worldwide. Contact darylscottwalker@gmail.com after the sale.

The Seasons - Triptych

/ˈtrɪptɪk/ a set of three associated artistic works intended to be appreciated together

With this first drop, Daryl wanted to create something unique and is one of his personal favourites from the North. Having visited the area many times, always striving to create something new ... it was not until the second visit when the conditions were special that Daryl thought about creating a Triptych of the seasons.

The area is popular with photographers as the main highland road the A82 stretches through the Glencoe Valley. The Lagangarbh hut sits a foot a great mountain and paints an iconic picture of Scotland.

Each season brings a different aesthetic to the valley; Autumn of 2019 Daryl visited on a golden sunrise which illuminated the entire view out in front of him. In summer, to a carpet of lush greenery, battling the pesky Scottish Midges is always fun during the summer but despite this the photography rewards are always sought after. Finally, ending the Triptych in the enchanting winter where only the brave stay in the hut to shelter from the tough Scottish elements.

FAQs

What is an NFT?

A NFT (non-fungible token) is a unique and non-interchangeable unit of data stored on a digital ledger. NFTs can be used to represent easily-reproducible items such as photos, videos, audio, and other types of digital files as unique items, and use blockchain technology to establish a verified and public proof of ownership.

What is the benefit of an NFT?

When selling any kind of art work in the ‘real world’ for instance, a print, the artist sacrifices any kind of later ownership of the goods once a sale has been made. Whilst you can authenticate a print with a certificate or proof of purchase, any future profits generated by the art are not directly tied to the original artist.

With NFTs, this ownership remains on the blockchain forever, therefore the artist and the collector know exactly who owns the original art work thus ensuring the value of said art remains with those who are invested in it.

Any future sales of valuable art as an NFT also benefits both the collector (through authentication) but also the artist who gains royalties on their original piece, something of a game changer in comparison to the traditional art world.

What is Foundation?

Foundation is a platform for hosting exclusive art work as NFTs through an invite only system therefore ensuring the artwork hosted on the platform is of top quality. Foundation only accepts (at present) 1/1 works.

What is Opensea?

Opensea is the worlds largest NFT platform hosting several kinds of artwork and is more used to display collections of art as opposed to 1/1 works. Opensea however does cross integrate any work shown on Foundation.

How can we view your work?

Daryl’s work can be seen on Foundation and will soon be available on Opensea once the ‘Homecoming’ collection is launched.

How do you purchase an NFT?

Tp purchase an NFT you will first need some crypto currency, the NFT world at present mostly operates on the Ethereum blockchain. You will need to convert your own currency into ‘ETH’ and then transfer into a Crypto Wallet where by transactions on the blockchain are tracked. Your Crypto Wallet stores all of your ETH (or other crypto currency), your transactions and is also your personal, address / identity for your artwork whether sold or collected.
