Artist D. Keith Furon has evolved photographic art in his Crafted Works series. These unique art pieces are hand manipulated into three-dimensional, deconstructed pieces of sculpted art in multiple sessions until the shape, distressing, texturing and manipulation are locked into the print so that it retains its shape in an archival form. The piece is then mounted, floating style, in a hand-made shadow box frame behind optically clear plexiglass. The original photographic image used in this piece will never be used or printed again. "Proof Sheet: 10-16-06" features the artist's original darkroom proof sheets from a shoot done on October 16, 2006. The proof sheets retain the original notes and frame markings. The final Crafted Works piece was created in 2015.
