B&W NYC Subway Moment – Platinum Print

SKU 00079

Product Details

About three years ago, I caught this public display of affection on the “L” (also known as the “love” train) line riding from Brooklyn to Manhattan. Then, I converted the color digital file to black and white because to me, this scene begs for it. Finally, I printed the image using the platinum/palladium process that renders tones of flesh and shiny metal especially well.

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.

However, recently, I find the presence of a hand brushed black frame distracting from the enjoyment of a well-printed image. I take extra steps in preparing my prints for printing by carefully masking the negative and limiting the application of sensitizer to a crisp clean edge.

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.
