About this project
This is an opportunity to acquire beautiful limited edition fine art prints by photographer Tyler Boley, also an acknowledged master printer, of a beautiful and unique project. “Beverly’s Garden” was started in the summer of 2010 when confined to home dealing with treatment for partner Beverly's newly diagnosed breast cancer. Working in the garden-- her cultivating, Tyler photographing, became therapeutic daily activity. This evolved over the summer and fall into a formal photographic endeavor with significant personal meaning, involving the essential NECESSITY of recognition of life outside of ourselves for sustenance. The result was a book for Beverly, a serious body of work, and in the long run, Beverly's remission. Seventy-five images are in the book, twenty have been selected as a print portfolio. Five pieces were selected to show at the Seattle Art Museum Gallery as part of "Contemplating Nature" in spring 2013. Remaining copies of the book, only ten made, after gifting to friends and supporters, have sold out.
A PDF of the entire book can be downloaded HERE- http://tylerboley.com/misc/BeverlysGarden_WEB.pdf

This project, should it succeed, will allow Tyler to print the entire portfolio edition at once, and complete the project, as well as provide it to supporters for a remarkable price. The prints will be completed with Epson Ultrachrome HDR inks on 100% cotton paper coated for maximum ink clarity, density, and color gamut. Print life longevity will be excellent, exceeding traditional analogue color prints. The images will be 24.44"w X 19.75"h on 30" x 24" sheets. They will be signed and numbered on the front, provenance information on the back, the edition limited to 20 each. The images were captured on fine grain high gamut medium format color negative film, drum scanned at high resolution, with uniquely careful image editing for maximum accuracy and visual impact on beautiful paper. Rewards are designed to give a higher per print discount based on quantity, and vary from one print up to the full portfolio of 20. Images must be selected in a timely fashion as only ten of each image will be part of the Kickstarter offering, to insure ten intact complete portfolios at the end. As any given image "sells out" at 10, it will no longer be available for selection.

One more reward has been added to accommodate those with limited ability to support or limited wall space. this is a beautiful little diptych of two images that bookended the image section of Beverly's Garden in book form, a small edition created specifically for this Kickstarter project.
January 28 update-
Beverly's Garden 64, 9 of 21 in the Beverly's Garden web gallery, is now sold out. If there are further pledges for the entire portfolio, I will suspend the limit and include it with the portfolio. This is no longer available for the other pledge levels. Thanks to everyone's support, including the response to this image, we're nearly there!
Risks and challenges
The only significant risk is technical breakdown of the printer before all the prints are completed. However local access to the same printer model is easily arranged through supportive relationships in the community. The particular materials, paper, ink, packaging, are all readily available from a variety of sources.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
