"The photograph is the most perfect picture. It does not change; it is absolute, and therefore autonomous, unconditional, devoid of style. Both in its way of informing, and in what it informs of, it is my source."
This work is in excellent condition overall. The print is mounted to an aluminum composite panel and face mounted to Diasec. There is evidence of scattered faint surface dust throughout. Under raking light, there are no apparent condition issues. Unframed.
