March For Our Lives - A Year Later, Today's Coolphoto 09/17/2019

This protest was in 2018, a year ago. Since then 36,383 people have been shot to death, most as suicide. This is personal. I lost two cousins to gun suicide.

On the March For Our Lives Saturday my mind was filled with memories of protests long ago, when I was at school. At that time gun violence in Southeast Asia was on everyone's mind. The gun violence now is in our schools, and hospitals, and public buildings, and music festivals, and grocery stores, and our living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, attics, and garages.

We don't know when to quit, or how. We are killing ourselves and everything else we can lay our hands on.

Death is around us and closing in fast. This is our doing.

Let’s stop doing it.

Vintage prints are made within a year of the photographs create date. My usual practice is to print within a few days or weeks of exposure. What you see is a scan of the actual print that is for sale. Price does not include shipping or taxes.

Please note that vintage prints are imperfect. They’re old, after all. If you’re worried about it, bring it up. I’ll do my best to answer your questions.

Vintage - When I print the photograph within a year of the original exposure, that becomes a Vintage Print.
Archival Pigment - When I print in my studio using computer technology with pigmented inks on acid and lignin free paper, I call that an Archival Pigment Print.
Silver - When I print in my darkroom on gelatin silver paper, that is a Silver Print. These prints are double weight on a cotton fiber base.
