Italy - Naples Hanging Clothes


Many elements in this image tease the imagination about life in such an ancient Roman city.

To venture down the narrow streets of old Naples, observing elements through the viewfinder of my camera, feeling the lives of those living in ancient buildings is part of what I aim to capture on film.

I made this image by photographing a first impression onto Fuji Velvia 100 ASA film.  My process involves first creating this "photographic etching" onto film that I will later convert into a digital or "printing plate" that will be read digitally to make a giclee print.This color image is made into two types of prints.  For a smooth look that reveals each tiny detail, I make a print onto rag paper. I then tear the edges of the print creating a deckle effect at the edge of the print. This type of print is very stunning framed by floating the print on matboard under UV filtering clear glass with airspace left between the print and the glass for conservation purposes.To accent the movement and texture of a picture, I make a print onto canvas and then paint the lines with clear acrylic brush strokes. A truly beautiful original piece that comes alive with a simple frame. Glass is not needed since the print is finished with a UV blocking varnish.Each print includes a Certificate of Authenticity describing the type of print and my original process of making each print.This image is limited to an edition of 150 28x16 prints on rag paper.
