This image’s title refers both to the presence of the clock, the immediacy of the moment, and the abstract relativity of the whole concept of time: when is now? What is now? How do we know when something must be done? When must the shutter be released; what is the optimal moment? Even objects that are static have an ‘ideal time’: in this case, when the sun is at the precisely right height to create shadows sufficient to delineate texture and transparency, but not overwhelm; when the clouds are in a position to reflect off the glass surfaces of the right hand towers, which are at the right level of reflectivity; when the brick in the foreground is aged and evenly patinated by loving birds. It is the only time to make this image, and because of that, the right time. MT

About the prints
Prints are made by Printmaster Wesley Wong of Giclee Art using our proprietary Ultraprint process, which delivers extremely high real resolutions – up to 720 pixels per inch, or four times that of an iPad’s Retina display, a wide gamut, and very smooth tonal transitions. We print on either Canson Infinity Platin Fiber Rag baryta or Permajet Portrait White depending on the subject matter and size using Epson Ultrachrome archival-grade inks.
