Artist's description:

I made this print in 2004, after I had moved permanently to France, from a negative shot in 1980 on a Pentax 67 fitted with a 75mm Pentax “shift” lens and an exposure time of 30 seconds during a “son-et-lumière” display at this famous chateau which sits on an island in a river. The film stock was Agfapan 400 developed in Agfa Rodinal, the image being hand-printed on Agfa Multicontrast Classic bromide paper (glossy unglazed) using a professional Durst L1200 Multigraph computer controlled enlarger, and selenium-toned for archival permanence. (Note: hand-printed by me in my darkroom - not in a commercial lab). The image area is 30.3 x 23.5 cms (12 x 9.25 inches) on 40 x 30 cms (16 x 12 inch) paper, and is signed and dated in ink just outside the image area. Printed reproductions of this image have also appeared in several photographic books and magazines since the early-1980s.

These remaining two prints from an original edition of five will never be reprinted in the same way again as I retired my professional darkroom in 2005. The three others from this edition are in collections in the UK and USA from private sales courtesy of Mike Johnston of "The Online Photographer" (or TOP) website.
