Illinois Central Tracks-1

10913-1 scanThe Illinois Central tracks at 144th Street in Riverdale, Illinois. Seen is a Union Pacific freight waiting on the tracks. The Metra electric line also runs down these tracks. The photo was taken in April of 2017 with a Minolta X-570 35 mm SLR equipped with a 50-135 mm f/3.5 Minolta MD lens on Ilford FP4+ film. The negative was enlarged optically with a Beseler 23CIIXL enlarger and a 50 mm f/2.8 Schneider Componon-S lens on Ilford Multigrade FB Classic Double Weight Fiber Base silver gelatin photo paper. Processing was done archivally using Kodak chemistry, with a final toning with Kodak Rapid Selenium Toner, treated with hypo clearing agent, and washed in an archival washer.

This print (1/25) was made in November, 2019 on 8” x 10” paper. All aspects of this print were handled in an authentic, pre-digital manner. Archival processing will ensure the maximum life span for this print.

This print is available for purchase for $200, mounted or unmounted. Please contact me if interested. Thank You.
