Zinc etched plate
My daughter lent me Brassaï: The Eye of Paris during her time studying photography at college in 2010. I found the image, the self portrait that Brassaï included, to be very beautiful and detailed.
Since then, I have kept the book in my studio. I had tried to etch this in the past, however my press did not provide enough pressure to print all the detail. I then purchased a new press which allowed me to finally produce the print I wanted.
The Frenchman work I have done has inspired me to do much more with etching plates as I love the medium.
