  1. Beautiful work Stephen, dreamy, painterly, haunting. The image, the long exposure and the choice of the hand made paper work extremely well together. I love that you leave no margins, somehow it would break the narrative of the image…. out of curiosity, which pinhole camera, film and how long the exposure? I really love it; good luck at the opening… maro

    Intriguing, but scary. It does make a lot of sense to just make a single copy though. Do you keep a digital reference copy though or small paper reference copy?

    Love this image!

    Very interesting but you are working in a print medium not a painting medium. The negative or digital film is like the plate which can be re-used at any given time. German Expressionist prints were re-struck in the 1970s. What would prevent someone from coming along after you lost control with your files or negatives and reprinted the images? What would a photographic retrospective look like? How would a book be produced? Futhermore, is the print more valuable is produced by the artist, or under the artists supervision, signed or unsigned?
