Overlap, after 9/11, 2001, Port Orchard

Self-Portrait after 911

Here is another one of a kind print from the early 2000s.  This is a self portrait taken with my old Mimaya TLR (twin lens reflex):  the film slipped when advanced.  I would get many frames that overlapped (a precursor to the pinhole images I do today).  The camera normally shot a square but  with the overlaps. the images became rectangles.  This silver gelatin print I toned in sepia, then blue toner.   It is the only toned print I made of this self-portrait and I will make no more because this print is made on Portriga Rapid, grade 3, fiber based, double weight, warm toned black and white enlarging paper which is not made anymore. This image was shot and printed shortly after 911; I am wearing a New York City firefighter’s t-shirt which was sent to us by a nephew who was a firefighter and worked at the Trade Towers after the attack.  I felt like I was in a prison, looking out at the world after 911.  This image is this week’s one-of-a-kind offer, printed on 11 x 14  inch paper and matted with 4-ply museum board 16 x 20 inches.  Ready for the frame!  Price, including the mat is $200.00 plus shipping and tax.  Go to the shop on this website to see the image with the mat.  Thanks for your interest.
