The Fine Print as Window or Art Object.
This will be somewhat confused I'm sure, as I've recently started wrestling with how I want my finished prints to look, so nothing is clear in my head concerning this stuff...
You could say I've followed the west coast (U.S.) style in that I use large format, and selenium tone my fibre based gelatin silver prints which are then drymounted onto and overmatted with white board in brushed aluminum frames. Matted and framed, my images are like windows through which viewers experience my way of seeing the world.
Lately, I've been trying to visualize my finished prints as objects of art unto themselves. I want them to be looked at, rather than looked through.
Anybody else wrestle with this one? How did your work change?
