Two Callotypes


These two shots are part of a new series I have embarked upon. They are the resulting products of many months of experimentation. At present I have twenty finished, a painstakingly slow process which includes trial and error and the patient expectation of an image as it slowly comes to life on the paper surface, many times with scars and blemishes, but never any less than beautiful.
The top image was taken in San Sebastián, the Basque Country, in 1988. The lower one, inside the clock at the Musée D'Orsay, Paris, 2007.
These are unique pieces, a maximum of two printed, on fibre based warm-tone paper, size 16x12 inches. If anyone out there is interested let me know and I will email a price.
