Social Distance. Limited Edition Black & White Photography Fine Art Print

Social Distance.  Limited Edition Black & White Photography Fine Art Print
Back in mid March, shortly after the so-called "shutdown" and "stay at home" propaganda campaigns began I decided to go for a long, slow, photo walk in various parts of Beverly, just to immerse myself in spaces and see what it looks like, and experience being in those spaces, noticing whatever arises, and capturing whatever catches my eye or strikes a cord within my thought.   This is one of those images captured that day.

 * Giclée, pronounced (zhee-CLAY), is a French word meaning that which is sprayed. Giclee prints evolved in the early 1990’s from equipment and processes used for digital graphic proofing in lithographic, and other printing industries. Beginning with a full size, high-resolution digital scan of the original artwork, the fine art prints are individually produced on special, large format ink-jet printers, typically utilizing from 7 to 12 pigment based, archival inks. This process offers the highest quality reproduction possible. The resolution of giclees is much higher than that of conventional offset printing & other printing methods, resulting in a virtual continuous tone image, instead of a visible dot pattern found in other printing methods. The detail is incredible; the color is rich and intense, with a broad range of tonal values. The estimated life span of giclees far exceeds that of other methods of fine art printing. Tests indicate longevity of over one hundred and thirty years with no noticeable fade.

 * First print FP 1/5 is traditionally held by the artist and is reserved for gallery exhibition & shows until it is sold. While this print is available for sale, it is priced much higher as it is the most valuable print in the entire edition other than the artist proofs and is the most in demand by collectors.

  Selling price increases an additional 10% after each sale. ie:   If Print number 2/25 sells for $200, then Print # 3/ 25 is 10% higher, therefore the selling price is $220, etc
