Hands On The Fret, Today's Coolphoto 4/30/2019


One of my first large scale projects was of Hands, and I chose friends and relatives primarily, but I also visited Nativity House downtown. Nativity House was in an old storefront back then, and allowed anyone to drop in for warmth, a bit of food, coffee, and companionship. It was the inspiration of David Rothrock to establish it. The place collected people who had been beaten pretty badly by life on the street. Now and again a young person with a guitar would arrive, fresh into a personal voyage of discovery.

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. Please note that vintage prints are imperfect; they will show regular wear and tear that comes with age. Price does not include shipping or taxes.

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.
