5. Zahra Majid
13 Sealand Court, Esplanade, Rochester, ME1 1QH

Most of my art is inspired and photographed in Picturesque Kent. My most popular images are of the Lavender Fields in Kent, Other Architecture & Floral Landscapes, Trains/Tubes, and Rochester Castle and Cathedral. I do Contemporary Photography balancing a fine edge between Photography & Painting. I print my photo landscapes on premium quality Hahnemuhle Paper for Fine Art Printing. I use these for both Fine Art Photography and Art Reproductions. This has highest industry standards regarding density, colour graduation and image sharpness. I only like to present the best quality to my art collectors and art connoisseurs as something they can frame and keep for life or gift to family and friends. The variety of sizes and prices makes my art loved by all.
