Gigantic Grafitti, NYC
Digital NEF, 2010-2012
From the NY Things II collection
(Intro from NY Things I)
When I go out shooting in NYC I am no longer facing the exotica of foreign countries. I am quite familiar with New York. My meanderings were mostly in Manhattan where I lived for about 60 years.
Still, I try not to plan anything, but rather be open to whatever comes my way. I find the results fall into mostly people, but also the “things" in NY, the calligraphy, the gesture, the eccentricity, and often the magnificence of those things, call out to me.
P.S. These images are all from 2010-2012.
Paper & Printing
Epson Legacy Baryta
Baryta paper has a white, smooth satin finish with the look and feel of the revered silver halide F-surface darkroom papers and provides excellent image permanence.
13x19 prints are placed on backing board inside a clear plastic bag. They are then packaged in a custom 15x21x3 corrugated box protected inside 3 inches of charcoal foam. More about shipping...
20x30 prints are shipped flat in MasterPak PrintPak Art Shipping Sleeves. A "container within a container" with multiple layers of protection.
Dye-Sublimation onto Aluminum (Metal)
Transferring the print to aluminum produces a vivid, archival quality print that is scratch resistant, doesn’t require glass or framing, and is lightweight and easy to hang. More about the paper...
Metal prints are shipped in a sturdy 44x63x3 wooden crate. More about shipping...
