signed, titled, dated, and annotated in pencil on the reverse, framed, 1957 (Aaron Siskind: Order with the Tensions Continuing, p. 10)
10⅝ by 13⅜ in. (27 by 34 cm.)
This photograph, on double-weight paper with a surface sheen, is in generally excellent condition. When examined closely in raking light, a soft crease which does not appear to break the emulsion is visible at the left center near the edge. There is minor wear and some creasing to the margins and corners.
As expected of a print from the late 1950s, when examined under ultraviolet light this print appears to fluoresce.
