This platinum-palladium print is in generally excellent condition. It is on paper with deckled left and right edges, which are very slightly yellowed. The upper and lower margin edges are subtly rippled.
On the reverse, along the edges, are several linen tape remnants from former hinges. The Condé Nast copyright stamp on the reverse is dated '1975' in pencil. Other stamps read as follows: 'Deacidified' and 'Hand-coated by the photographer.' The following notation is written on the reverse of the print in pencil: '(SM) NEG. XXXVI'; 'Print made November 1975'; and 'No more than 55 original prints of this picture will ever be made.'
