In the most recent issue of B&W, the section dedicated to auctions and the phtography market was discussing the recent AIPAD show in New York and Photo LA.
From the article:
"One of the most dramatic pictures in the fair was seen in Robert Klein's booth: Tom Baril's 54x65 inch Bethlehem Steel #2, a collodion print from a glass negative, which quickly sold for $12,000."
I am a little confused about this description.
Would this be a glass plate of 54x65? Or do they mean a regular glass negative, enlarged onto a paper with a collodion coating? Or a smaller glass plate made with a collodion process and then enalrged onto paper that big.
Anyone familar with his work or can clarify how the final print might have been obtained?
If it is actually a glass plate at that size, what lens covers something that big?
