This image is being offered as a limited edition, archival, digital pigment photograph and is #1 of 15. Printed by the artist on museum quality, heavy weight exhibition fiber paper, it is signed and numbered by the artist below the image. It is also signed, titled, numbered and dated on the back and includes the artist's stamp. The image, at the size indicated, is printed on paper that is approximately 24x28 inches. The pricing of the photographs increases as the edition sells out
Employing a 19th century lensless photographic process, I wanted to explore Portland’s Pearl District as it rapidly morphed during the recent real estate boom. The process, unlike the pinhole, can be handheld and seems to decompose the subject into its molecular state. The result is a transformation of the place and harkens to the transient nature of what has been photographed. In very large prints, the subject can sometimes seem to disappear when you move close, giving one the sense that it might also change when you step back again.
The entire series can be seen here: http://www.johnacurso.com/The-Pearl-District.html
Most of the photographs in this series are available in 4 different sizes--all are limited editions--as follows :
16x20 inches: limited to 15 prints
20x24 inches: limited to 15 prints
30x40 inches: limited to 5 prints
40x50 inches: limited to 5 prints
(the actual size is based on the actual aspect ratio of the specific image, with the longest side being the constant)
Only one size of any image is generally posted here for sale at any one time, so please notify me through this site's message system, or by email, if you are interested in one of the other sizes.
