Collectors Print Special August 2017

The images in the 2017 Collectors Print Specials are selected from my Olson House portfolio. Andrew Wyeth documented life on this isolated, saltwater farm. He painted Christina, Alvaro and their home as symbols of Maine. I photograph the Olson House because of the light pouring in from the oversized windows, bouncing off the hard surfaces of the rooms. Without the life and vitality of the Olsons, the house lost its appeal for Wyeth and he searched for new inspiration. For me, the inspiration continues as the spectral presence of the past weaves in and out of the light. Different artists… different muses.

The Olson House was gifted to the Farnsworth Museum in 1991. The contents of the house had been removed, including the stove, and the house stood worn and silent. I made Kitchen Doors, Olson House, Cushing, ME, (Structure, Pl. 34) in 1992. It was a very cold, clear winter day. The light from the window cast this beautiful shadow of the dried hanging plant in the window but I was as intrigued by the label left hanging from an old picture hook.

All Collectors Print Specials are approximately 5” x7” platinum prints, in editions of 25. The special price of $225.00 is available ONLY during the month of offer and reflects a 45% savings. (Full retail pricing of $500.00 + shipping reinstates on the first day of the following month.) Shipping costs within the continental U.S. is included but prorated to other locations and ME sales tax applies for ME residents. Your print arrives signed, numbered and un-matted – within 30 days of the end of this offer. The last Collectors Print Special for 2017 will be available in November.

A bonus 5thimage is yours when you purchase all four images in this year’s collection. You can order all four images in this series when you order the February print special. We can keep a credit card number on file for the year or you can be invoiced and pay by check. Prints will be sent individually each quarter.

 Please return the order form to me by August 30, 2017 to reserve your copy of this month’s Collectors Print Special (XXXI). Thank you for your order!

All the best

I made Mangle, Olson House, Cushing, ME in 1993. This sink was out in the attached barn. The soft, early morning light created a work of beauty from this simple, utilitarian tool.

Welcome to the first 2017 Colelctors Print Special! These images  are selected from my Olson House portfolio. Andrew Wyeth documented life on this isolated, saltwater farm.

The Olson House was gifted to the Farnsworth Museum in 1991. The contents of the house had been removed, including the stove, and the house stood worn and silent. I made Stove Pipe, Olson House, Cushing, ME in 1992. I loved the angle of the light coming across the wall, leaving just a hint of the door to the barn off to the left.

wrenches

The 2016 Collectors Print Specials were selected from Tillman Crane/Structure to celebrate the 15th anniversary of publication. Each of these images was made in a location where design exceeded purpose and the result is beautiful. Transformed by light these utilitarian spaces become special, often sacred, causing us to pause, rest, reflect, lifting the moment from ordinary to extraordinary.

Wrenches, Chestnut Hill Pumping Stations, MWRA, Boston, MA (plate 8) was made in 1992. These pump stations provided water to the greater Boston area from 1888 until they were taken offline in the 1970’s. The Chestnut Hill reservoir began as a gravity feed system in 1870 but two pumping stations were later added to the site: the Richardsonian Romanesque-style High Service Pumping Station (1888) and the Beaux Arts-style Low Service Station (1901). My father-in-law, Paul Boyd, introduced me to these buildings and I was lucky to photograph them a number of times before the property was sold off for development. Today three engines remain on display in the Waterworks Museum and the rest of the property has been repurposed as commercial and condominiums.

All Collectors Print Specials this year are approximately 5” x7” platinum print, limited to an edition of 25. These images are available for $225.00 ONLY during the month of offer. (This includes shipping to the continental U.S.A. and reflects a 45% savings. Shipping to other locations will be prorated.) The regular price of $500.00 (plus shipping) is reinstated on the first day of the following month. Your print arrives signed, numbered and un-matted – within 30 days of the end of this offer. The specials will be individually available in February, May, August and November.

 Please return the CPS_NOV_XXVIII to me by November 30, 2016 to reserve your copy of this month’s Collectors Print Special (XXVIII). Thank you for your order!
