Art Print Description:
If you’re looking for an eye-catching British print, there’s no question that this London Telephone Box print fits the bill. This particular piece of art is far and away my most popular for a simple reason. It connects with people. It connects with Anglophiles and others who love all things British. But what is more surprising is the number of people over the years who have told me that they only had a passing interest in Britain but simply loved this print. There’s no doubt it’s one of those pieces of art that will start conversations. This is a piece that surpasses the subject. It’s the combination of the splash of red and the framing of the scene that matters most.
If you are interested in more background, this particular British Telephone Box stands near London’s Temple tube station on the Victoria Embankment. Long before my first visit to the UK, I had a fondness for the distinctive style of these classic telephone booths. After a few visits that love for them was cemented. Whenever I stumble across a telephone box, I have to pause to capture it for posterity. I guess for me, these old phone boxes are a great combination of form and function. Of course, their function in a day of mobile phones is largely absent, but they retain their great classic 1930’s British style. And rarely these days do we see so much style in something so utilitarian.
I stumbled onto this telephone box while I was waiting for a London walking tour to start. I glanced down the sidewalk near the tube station and saw this beautiful pop of red. But it was more than the color. I was taken with the quality of light and how all of those lines seemed to draw the eye in, There was just a great feeling of depth and perspective and I knew I had to capture this singular moment.
I took this photo a step further, employing a selective color treatment that was used to really make the original bright red of the telephone box pop against the high contrast background that was converted to Black and White. This is a selective color treatment that I don’t use often but when it works, it really works.
And as I said, I’m not alone in that belief. Despite having other prints that sell well, none have surpassed this one so far! It’s unquestionably a true classic that connects with viewers. What about it speaks to you? Does it remind you of a trip to Britain? Does the color make your heart melt a little? Or maybe you just love the style of these old telephone boxes?
Note: This K2 Telephone Kiosk is an English Heritage Grade II Listed Building
Wonder what past print buyers think?
I ordered a framed print of the Macon County Clinic and Nurses house . My mother… worked there from 1956 until the clinic closed. … It is a beautiful artwork and looking forward to seeing her face when she gets this gift on Christmas. Thanks for the Great GIFT!!
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
I got my prints today! I had them done on wood and I love them! Mark was so kind to work with me on what I wanted!
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
I just concluded my ordering of 11 metal prints of your Atlanta images.
Thanks for your help and artistic talents!
The print is absolutely breathtaking! I immediately went and had it framed, I just couldn’t wait to display it.
I’m excited to show off your work to my friends and family. You are one of the most talented photographers I’ve seen and it’s a pleasure to own your work.
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
I purchased this pair of Tisdale artwork (Dawn Divides and Contemplating Life) for a wedding gift. The couple are getting married this summer in a facility on the Chattahoochee in Roswell, GA. This pair of photos on canvas is going to mean so much to them. I could not be more pleased to give them as a gift to my son and new daughter-in-law.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
Beautiful! Love it! Five stars!!! Many thanks! 🙂
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
I gifted my father with this piece (Troy’s Snack Shack Print) and he loves it! He thought the man in the doorway was him.
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.
It’s simply beautiful! The colors are so vibrant and powerful.
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it… It’s absolutely beautiful.
I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris.
Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
…it is a surprise for my daughter when she comes home from college.. …and I can’t wait for her to see it!! Nice surprise for her finishing her first year and doing amazing!
I framed the picture of our house and put it under the tree for Sid.
He loved it!
Got my print today – Beautiful! Thanks! : )
Can’t wait to get it framed and on the wall.
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
Unlike a purchase from a big box store, your print purchase from this site directly supports this artist. Thank you for making a difference!
