Fashion Photography Collection
This is a photograph of a prototype shoes created by the fashion designer Claude Montana. The picture was commissioned by the Italian magazine Vogue Pelle in 1985 and remained unpublished. The editions 6/20 to 15/20 are beautifully made with carbon pigment inks technique and are printed on Hahnemühle Bamboo Fine Art paper* with a new image format of 50.9 x 39 cm (the vintage prints image format was 24.5 x 18.5 cm). The editions 8/20 to 20/20 are reserved for future events.
Agfa Record Rapid, Agfa Portriga, Foma and Forte paper are the discontinued gelatin silver printing papers that I used in the 80s until the early 90s. Unfortunately, there is no equivalent paper today in the gelatin silver printing process. It took me a long time to find high quality alternatives in order to continue my print editions of this period. Carbon pigment ink and Platinum techniques offer fantastic quality and tremendous resistance to aging.
