The Appalachian Trail Print Collection

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved taking photographs. I used to take them with disposable cameras and send them off for development. I was always so excited to receive the paper envelopes containing the prints, eager to see what I had been able to capture.

Those days are long gone and digital formats have taken over. I’ve rolled along with the tide upgrading to a DSLR and storing images on hard drives but I still love printing photos. I like being able to hold a photograph in my hand and place it in an album or a frame. As the world leans deeper into digital, I will continue to print my favorite images. I would also like to share them with anyone who, like me, still loves the tangible nature of a print.

Each print is 4×6 inches, matted onto natural FSC Certified recycled card stock. They are the perfect size for sending in the mail as a greeting card and they fit into 5×7 inch frames. An envelope and gold seal are included and each  print is protected in an archival sleeve.

The Appalachian Trail Collection

The Appalachian Trail stretches over 2,000 miles from Springer Mountain, Georgia to Mount Katahdin, Maine. It is the longest foot-travel-only trail system in the world. In 2014 my partner Chris and I spent seven months backpacking this incredible passage. This collection is a look into the journey.

This 15 print edition is $60. Please contact jamieratchford87@gmail.com if you would like to place an order.
