silver gelatin pe paper with glossy surface, very good condition, only little signs of handling and tiny corner bumps.
pretty sure a handmade darkroom print from a approx. 6x6cm negativ: can be seen in the exposed upper and lower margin, where the light sensitive paper was not covered correctly by the enlarging frame...
Either exhibition or work print, as the size of image is equal to his art print sizes, or press print.
From exhibition at Joe and Emily Lowe Art Gallery at Syracuse University.
While he lived Meatyard’s work was shown and collected by major museums, published in important art magazines, and regarded by his peers as among the most original and disturbing imagery ever created with a camera. He exhibited with such well-known and diverse photographers as Edward Weston, Ansel Adams, Minor White, Aaron Siskind, Harry Callahan, Robert Frank, and Eikoh Hosoe. But by the late 1970s, his photographs seemed consigned to appear mainly in exhibitions of “southern” art. In the last decade, however, thanks in part to European critics, Meatyard’s work has reemerged, and the depth of its genius and its contributions to photography have begun to be understood and appreciated."
