Photography arrests time, and each print should be timeless. I strive to print photographs that never fail to capture your eye and attention. One at a time.
I place numbered limits on photographs, whether sold individually or as part of a portfolio or project. The specific number limit may vary due to a variety of considerations but will always be clearly listed and tracked. Each limited edition will consist of the following components:
- A small number of artist proofs denoted on the reverse by “AP” and limited to between one and four prints. Artist proofs are not for sale.
- A limited edition of prints, of which all but a small subset will initially be made available for sale.
Limited editions ensure that I am continually creating new work. They also reflect the practical limitations of my time. Unlike photographers who outsource their printing, I alone print and sign each photograph, one at a time. I take pride and care in this process, for it ensures that the final print reaches you, the collector, as the truest representation of the subject and with a meticulous attention to detail. Even without explicit image limits, my prints would be inherently limited by the time it takes to make them. Setting image limits simply formalizes this reality while offering predictability and accountability on behalf of the collector.
Each print is numbered and given a print date code and a capture date code. The number limit represents the total of all sizes of a given photograph. For example, if a photograph is available in a limited edition of 30 prints, only 30 numbered prints will ever be made. The sizes of these 30 prints will be determined by the decisions of you, the collector. I maintain a history of the sizes of all prints made from any given photograph. Upon request, I will happily let you know how many prints I have made of any given photograph in any given size.
As noted earlier, I reserve a small subset of each edition. For example, in a limited edition of 30 prints, 25 may be available for sale, while five may be set aside. I reserve the last several copies in any edition for a number of purposes, including:
- Institutional lending.
- To serve as part of future works or projects.
- To allow for the opportunity to reprint older works from a new perspective.
- For my personal collection.
I use only the highest quality archival museum grade materials. Please see Materials and Framing for more information.
