Bridge in the Woods: It was another road trip scouting for photographs for the “Roadside America” project. As I drove through the Allegany mountains near West Virginia, we crossed a new cement bridge. But off in the distance a glimmer of steel and an old road caught my eye. I pulled off and turned around to discover the old highway bed and followed it to a bridge in the woods with shade and sunlight dancing among the leaves with a puddle of water from the recent rain. The trees line the bridge making them belong with each other.
To ensure additional value for you (and for me as a photographer) all print editions are kept relatively small. The “small batch” Limited Editions have an absolute limit of 25 prints. Even if there are two different print sizes, there will only be a total of 25 prints. Each print is signed, titled and numbered (i.e. ##/15). In addition to the small number of each edition, I keep a “registry” of every print sold, by number and owner to further ensure the integrity and value of the physical print.
Beyond the numbered edition there may be one or two “artists’ proofs” either in my possession or in the marketplace. If the artist proof is in the marketplace, this is noted in the “registry.” Often these “AP’s” are given to friends or others who might have been the reason the particular photo moved from the “dark room” to production.
Once the edition is sold out, I will not print additional copies and the photograph will no longer be “for sale”. As an edition nears selling out/completion, the price may increase.
