As many know, most of my prints are issued as non-numbered "open editions," but over the years I have offered a small number of limited edition prints. The first limited edition print I released was my image Birch Trunks, New Hampshire. It was offered under the mantle of Darkroom Edition 1986 thirty years ago. Over the years I have offered six Darkroom Edition limited edition prints. Since 2016 marks the 30th anniversary of the Darkroom Edition series, it seemed like a perfect time to rejuvenate the idea.
The new limited edition print is:
Trees in Snow, Winter Sun, El Capitan Meadow, Yosemite Valley, California.
I made this image a number of years ago on a winter trip to my favorite photographic location, Yosemite Valley. The day started out with a heavy overcast that soon lead to a steady snowfall. In early afternoon the clouds suddenly broke and strong, crisp low-angle sunlight raked across El Capitan Meadow. The light moved quickly so I had to respond in kind. I hope you will find this print to be as interesting and as exciting as I do.
This 11x14" silver gelatin print is offered in a limited edition of 100 signed and numbered prints, plus ten Artist's Proofs. When the edition is sold out no further prints will be made for sale in any size. The current price is $2,000, and this price will escalate as the edition sells.
This silver gelatin, selenium toned, print is approximately 13-1/4 x 10-1/4", personally printed by me (as are all my prints), processed to current archival standards, numbered, signed, mounted, and overmatted to 16x20" on 100 percent rag museum board. As has been the case with all previous Darkroom Edition prints, a beautifully printed archival presentation sheet will accompany each print.
All prints are carefully prepared and packaged in specially designed protective shipping boxes, and shipped fully insured via UPS ground.
Normally there is a long waiting period for John's original prints. This is a rare opportunity to obtain a print with a short waiting period, and at a greatly discounted price.
