Sonatas VIII-9 (Andante Felice)

Pristine in all it’s untouched glory
Kissed by the sun, sky blue and bright
Before the world wakes up to see the story
I walk home a different way along the paths of untouched white.
Not wishing to see the prints I made to mark the perfect sight.

16001-1 scanThe photo was taken in January of 2020 with a Pentax 67 medium format SLR equipped with a 105 mm f/2.4 SMC Pentax 67 lens on Ilford FP5+ film. The negative was enlarged optically with a Beseler 23CIIXL enlarger and a 100 mm f/5.6 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, 2020 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.
