Oscar Romero March, Seattle 1987 - With Archbishop Hunthausen (Vintage Silver), Today's Coolphoto 09/25/2019

On a brilliant Spring morning, we walked to protest the profound tragedy of the murder of 100,000 people in Central America. That was in 1987, thirty two years ago. We took to the streets to remember the murder of Archbishop Oscar Romero in 1980. He dared to implore that the killing stop, so he was killed. And 40 others were killed. It was an act of terrorism.

“In the name of God and the name of the suffering people,
I implore you, I beg you, I order you, stop the repression!”

On the right in the picture is Raymond Hunthausen, Archbishop of Seattle. He was “Dutch” to us. I saw him as a man with courage and conviction, and he was good at his job too. Such sins were punished severely by the church and he was fired. But first they sent in a minder.

The guy who fired him is named Ratzinger. What a name. He changed it to Benedict when he became the pope. Probably the only really smart thing the guy ever did.

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.
