what if a photographer didn't want to be pinned down
and have to print the same old boring negative 500 or 200 or 100 or 20 times ?
when i was making single edition prints, it was because the idea of a singular image
really differentiates a photograph as a hand made object, unlike something that can be
obtained by pressing a button &c. i still believe this today ( 20+ years later ) ...
it always makes me laugh when i hear of someone with an edition of 500 images.
what's the point, to flood the marketplace with "loved images" ?
If the public demands 500 prints, raise the price and hire a darkroom assistant. It sounds awfully unfair to deny people prints they really want just to make one client happy with a singular image.
