Mostly from books. Only some that I have seen at galleries and museums but
not a ton of the ones in this book in person.
Tell me about print being different: above is a URL of an original gum side
by side with its appearance in a book, a marked difference.
So, like Cigar Boy, certainly the exhibition guide could look nothing like
the actual print.
>>Do they make you want to print darker?
Yes, the darkness of the prints in this book make me want to explore
printing darker. I think there is much room for this kind of dark beauty in
this day and age.
But what surprises me about the book is that many of the images are still
quite powerful, and contemporary.
