Park Bench v1 ~ A truly original (1/1) photograph
A weathered blue bench under a tree in a small community park of Lexington, NC. It is early Autumn, the air is crisp and the leaves are starting to fall. This was an exciting image to makes as I found the plane of focus very interesting and the bench was blue making it photograph very bright in the scene.
This image is "v1" indicating it is the1st of two images made of this scene. Both v1 and v2 are unique originals and are the actual photographic paper used in the camera at the time of exposure. Each image has slightly different qualities. v1 is slightly lighter and has more of a toning effect from the selenium toner.
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 and it is ready to hang. The wood frame is black and has Anti reflective Water White ArtGlass. The size of the finished piece with frame is approximately 9.5x11.5x.75
Direct positive fiber base photographic paper treated with selenium toner. Framing is black metal with premium anti-reflective Water White ArtGlass.
