I went to Italy in 1998 for seven weeks.  I photographed daily and made about 4000 images on film with 35mm and medium format cameras.  We lived in a small village in northern Tuscany up in the hills with beautiful light, great food and long days of exploring, napping and shooting.  I realized early on that I was looking for an Italy that I had visited in the early seventies, not one full of tourists, but one with timeless architecture and beautiful landscapes.  I found this  in the Tuscan hills and when  I came home, I spent a year printing and editing the images.  I ended up with 40  photographs that were important to me.  These images have been exhibited widely and were printed in an edition of 10.  All were printed  on semi-matte silver gelatin paper and toned  in homemade sepia toner and  gold chloride for maximum longevity.  An article about the printing and toning process appeared in the World  Journal of Post-Factory Photography, #7, titled  the Power of Gold.  Most of the images in edition are sold out in the silver editions, a few are left. All are available now as digital prints.  Some are still available in the edition size of 16 x 20.  Please inquire.
