SENATOR HOTEL POOL
Miami Beach, Florida
Photographic Story I fell in love with the Art Deco region before it became the attraction it is today. The Senator Hotel was one of my favorite places to photograph. However, much to my horror, it was torn down in 1988 and replaced with a parking garage. It has so many classic Art Deco features. It was a sad day when it was replaced with a parking garage. The Art of Hand Painting Black and White Photographs Niki prints her images on fiber-base black and white mat surface paper in the darkroom, then using Q-tips and cotton balls, she applies a thin coat of oil paint over the surface allowing the image to gently be seen through the oil paint. Archival Print Making Niki’s open edition gicleé artwork is printed on Sunset Bright Velvet Rag matte finish paper using eight archival inks. A state-of-the-art Epson Stylus Pro printer creates deep, rich dark values that hold subtle detail in the shadows as well as bright vivid colors that are truly tropical.
