Over ten years in the making, Gifted is a 200-page hardcover book from photographer Jaimie Milner that includes 80 photographs and 40 full-length interviews showcasing the image and voice of black men today. Featuring remarkable men in the arts, business, politics, and finance, Gifted is a creative work focused on expanding a positive image of black men throughout culture. In 2010, Milner began photographing and interviewing black men out of curiosity, wanting to know their dreams and their fears. Over time that curiosity evolved into a desire to share what she had found. The project now serves as a platform for their multitude of truths. Through this project, Milner’s hope is not to change the views of others, but to ignite pride through positive imagery that reminds black men of the undeniable talent and influence they possess.

Framing & Mounting

THIN GALLERY FRAME

3/4" wide; 1 1/8" deep
UV - PROTECTIVE ACRYLIC
Our acrylic is more expensive than glass, but we use it because it’s clearer, far more impact resistant, and protects your art against UV rays. Framing-grade acrylic has become a new standard in framing because of its “clear” benefits.
THE FULL BLEED
Works are framed flush with the edge of your print without a mat. Request border modifications and spacers, which keep the work from touching the glass.
Adds a white core mat with a bevel cut opening to the edge of your print. If your work has a signature or edition numbering, we will automatically mat around it unless otherwise specified.
We use 4-ply, conservation-grade, acid-free mat board. We match whites and off-whites to your exact piece. Acid-free materials protect your art from yellowing or becoming brittle.
Floating a piece allows for a full view of the face and sides of the artwork. Floating is recommended for original drawings and paintings or any piece produced on specially trimmed paper.
