Platinum is, of all forms of photography, the most luminous, archival and rare. Although difficult, time consuming and costly to create, platinum prints are the sine-qua-non of photographic art. Over the years, the only obstacle to widespread enjoyment of platinum has been lack of access to this rare process. Once experienced, it is usually a visual revelation! And it is the visual value, the tremendous tonal range, that makes platinum prints so extraordinary. This is one of only a handful of prints made and by the very nature of the process, each platinum print is unique. Retail for this print would be over €500.

Purchased directly from the artist in 2004.

Will be sent by FedEx Priority.
