Liv Sage is a professional photographer's and artist's model who collaborated with me on a series of classic nudes. In this image, I attempted to depict Liv's body as a landscape whose undulations parse the horizon from sky. I intentionally cropped out head and feet, suggesting that the composition extends beyond the picture's limits. Finally, I combined inkjet under-printing with platinum/palladium over-printing to supply a hint of color resulting in the appearance of a hand-coloring.
If you collect platinum prints, you may expect to find the image area surrounded by a traditional black edge formed by exposed sensitizer chemicals that are brushed onto the paper. That is typical of hand made platinum prints and indeed, I made many prints in this way, some of them you will find on this site.
This picture measures 8" wide X 12" high and is printed on Hahnemühle Platinum 100% Rag paper. I offer two simple framing options or order the print unframed. Unframed prints will be shipped in an acid-free folio.
Please allow approximately two weeks for fulfillment. Each order is custom printed, hand-assembled, and if framed, matted with acid-free museum board, archival hinges, and protected under clear acrylic to ensure safe shipping. The print will be signed in pencil on the verso sometimes including printer's notes.
Please note: International shipping rates are calculated for the framed version. Rate will be less for the unframed version.
This is a limited edition of 25 prints. Certificate of authenticity included.
