A View from Dead Indian Peak.. where Chief Joseph, Nez Percé chief, when faced with settlement by whites of their tribal lands in Oregon, led his followers in a dramatic effort to escape to Canada. The 1400 mile march embarrassed the American military as “the Indians throughout displayed a courage and skill that elicited universal praise… [they] fought with almost scientific skill, using advance and rear guards, skirmish lines, and field fortifications.” In over three months, the band of about 700, fewer than 200 of whom were warriors, fought 2,000 U.S. soldiers and Indian auxiliaries in four major battles and numerous skirmishes. By the time he formally surrendered on October 5, 1877, Joseph was widely referred to in the American press as “the Red Napoleon.” Source: PBS
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
