Art Description

Photography: Digital and Black & White on Paper.

I received and Sperti grant back in 1981. I used the money to spend about a month in the Yucatan photographing Mayan ruins and people. When I flew back into New Orleans after nearly a month of rarely hearing English spoken and the slow moving pace in the Yucatan I was bombarded with the Mardi Gras revery. I decided to stick around and see what it was all about. This was one of my favorite street portraits I made on "Fat Tuesday" there. She had quite the story and I home this image captures some of it. This image was chosen by Vogue IT as a Picture of the day for their website. Like all my prints, it is limited to an edition of 25 regardless of media or size. After those are sold not other prints will be offered for sale. My current method of printing is using the Epson 3880 printer with Ilford Galleried Gold Fiber paper. it's beautiful, thick and archival. All my images are printed full frame inside a sheet of 17x22" paper so the measurements give here are approximate.
