Rusty Davey Compressor, 2020


Limited Editions have an absolute limit of 25 prints. Each print is signed, titled and numbered (##/25). Once the edition is sold out, no additional prints will be made and the image will be retired to my archives.

Old, rusty and decrepit machinery practically screams, "Photograph me!"

Who am I to argue?

Shot on Ilford HP5+ in a 1951 Rolleiflex Automat. A yellow filter added some contrast and pop. I'm including this image in my Limited Edition Collection for one reason in particular: it was split-toned in the darkroom.

I've chosen Ilford MultiGrade Fiber 13 x 13 as the paper upon which this print will be made. There's a wonderful tooth to this paper which adds depth and structure.
