Cibachrome print, flush-mounted to aluminum, framed, 2004, no. 8 in an edition of 10
39 by 30 in. (99.1 by 76.2 cm.)
This Cibachrome print is in generally excellent condition. The colors remain saturated with no apparent fading.The following are visible in raking light: fingerprints near the edges; 2 small scuffs near the lower right edge; a small hairline scratch in the lower left quadrant that appears to break the emulsion; and a 3/4-inch scratch near the figure's shoulder, which does not appear to break the emulsion. Faint linear abrasions at the extreme edges of the print are due to contact with the spacer in the frame. This is not visible when viewing the print framed, as intended.
