framed to the photographer's specifications
chromogenic print, flush-mounted
59⅛ x 29¼ in.; 150.2 x 74.3 cm
1994, this work is number 6 from an edition of 8.
While this chromogenic print has not been examined out of its frame, it appears to be in generally excellent condition. The colors remain bright and saturated, with no apparent fading. When examined extremely closely under high raking light, the following are visible: a few hairline scratches that do not appear to break the emulsion; and tiny deposits of original retouching.
