'Camera Obscura Image of Houses Across the Street in Our Bedroom'


large-format gelatin silver print, mounted, signed, titled, and dated in ink on a label on the reverse, framed, a Bonni Benrubi Gallery, Inc., label on the reverse, 1991, no. 5 in an edition of 15

image: 30 ¾ by 38 ⅝ in. (78.1 by 98.1 cm.)

frame: 44 by 51 ½ in. (111.8 by 130.8 cm.)

Please note the colors and shades in the online catalogue illustration may vary depending on screen settings. This photograph is in generally excellent condition. Upon close examination, scattered deposits of the photographer's original retouching are visible. The window mat appears to be affixed to the right margin. As a consequence, there is a one-and-1/4-inch tear to the lower right margin corner, not affecting the image. The lower left margin corner is creased. The margin edges are unevenly trimmed and the dry-mounting tissue is visible at the periphery of the print on the mount. None of the above mentioned are visible when viewing the photograph framed.
