I turn my best images of Bristol into lightboxes
Welcome to Bristol in a Box! Born and bred in Paris, I moved to Bristol in 2010 and have never looked back! I take pictures for my blog and I've seen my work rewarded in competitions like 24 Hours in Bristol and the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year. One of my pictures was also selected to be the cover image for the Visit Bristol guide.
One day I had the luminous idea (pardon the pun!) to add a backlighting system to my framed photographs so they can glow in the dark.
I decided to take woodworking lessons to learn how to make each of my lightboxes by hand. From my tiny 'workshop' in the corner of my kitchen I build lightboxes with pine wood and LED lights. They feature pictures I take with my trusty old Nikon.
Beautiful framed photographs by day, they become amazing lightboxes by night, bringing a nice soft light to your room. These unique lamps look great on a mantelpiece, a bedside table or on a shelf. The perfect gift for that friend who's got everything! They also make lovely night lights to keep monsters and witches away in kiddies' bedrooms.
- Made in pine wood
- Mains connected with an on/off switch for ease of use.
- It comes with its 12V UK power adapter.
- It measures 19 x 19 cm and is 4 cm deep.
- The LED lights inside do not generate heat and the lightbox is safe to touch.
- I use Danish oil to protect the wooden frame and give it a lovely shine.
