a unique photocollage, signed in ink in the margin, framed to the photographer's specifications
5 gelatin silver prints stitched together with gold-toned thread
overall: 11½ x 8 in.; 29.2 x 20.3 cm
This photocollage is in overall excellent condition. As was typical of the photographer's working method, each gelatin silver print was hand-torn and machine-stitched together. As a result, each collaged element is gently rippled. There is a very small area of soiling at the left margin of the central print.
