Metal Doors ~ A truly original (1/1) photograph
Metal doors with great texture and character at a loading platform on a once busy industrial building in Lexington, NC.
In the "depot" area of the city of Lexington there are many old industrial type buildings full of history. The work and workers have moved on but the shells of industry remain. I find this to be these to be the most interesting doors that I have found in all of Lexington, NC. To me it looks extra secure as if it needs to hide some secrets.
A black and white 5x7 direct positive fiber base print. This image is the actual photographic paper used in the photographers Kodak 2-D 5x7 camera at time of exposure. The image appears reversed from how one would perceive the actual scene because the camera lens casts an inverted image onto the photographic paper.
The paper is a direct positive photographic fibre base paper which has been carefully processed, washed and treated with selenium toner in the photographer darkroom.
The print has been dry mounted using bright white 8x10 archival matboard. The signed and dated top mat is dry mounted as well making this a solid piece. Framing is black metal with premium anti-reflective Water White ArtGlass. Complete framed size is approximately 9.4x11.4x.75
