This silver print is in overall very good condition, with incredible and striking contrasts. Double weight paper. Extremely fine creases by lower left corner, and tiny edges chipping near upper right corner, as well as a faint vertical crease (app 2.5cm) along lower edge, all of which hardly noticeable and only in raking light. A few foxing spots in upper right quadrant, only visible in raking light. Please note that the print has been detached from initial contemporary mount which suffered severe water damages that has not affected the print, and that signature and Carmel studio stamp have been preserved and now accompanies the work. Uniform yellowing of print verso from initial mounting glue.
