All pictures framed with 24 x 18 or 14 x 11 acid free mats and acid free
backing. The images are 18 x 12 or 9.5 x 6.5 inches.
Because of travel schedule I do not be accepting internet orders - however,
you may try to e-mail me to see if I can get a footprint out to you - use the
"Contact Me" link for this purpose
Please see "Upcoming Shows" page to see the dates of and the locations of
where my work will be on display and will be for sale in the upcoming months.
I have entered shows in Florida, South Carolina and Alabama for 2012 and
2013. As I am accepted for each show I will add it to the list.
|All over the United States there are things that have been left behind and
forgotten. Perhaps an old family homestead in Alabama, a no longer used
barn in the middle of the Kansas prairie, a long ago replaced truck or
tractor on an old county road, a deserted school building, or someone’s failed
business venture located along highway that has been bypassed by an
Interstate. These images caught my eye as I passed by. These abandoned
structures, vehicles and implements are found on mostly on back roads, but
also along interstate highways and even within inner cities. Many of the things
that I have photographed are no longer there. I have preserved these
images so that, even when the building or vehicle is gone, a memory of its
having existed will have been preserved.
|Each footprint in this collection is individually composed and printed by the
artist. The photos are printed on archival glossy and archival metallic coated
paper using HP Ink. They are matted and mounted with acid free materials.
The 24 x 18 large photos are double matted over an 18 x 12 image and
each has a plaque telling where the picture was taken. Each print is sealed in
the frame with a dust cover and has hardware attached and stainless steel
braided wire for hanging.
No two footprints are created at the same time and each is worked on and
edited by itself.
All photos are signed but, since each print is created on a one-at-a-time
basis, none are numbered.
Because of this technique, footprints of the same subject matter may display
differing details within pictures of the same subject.
