Well, I've decided to jump on the train (driven it seems by Jen Bekman...) while it's still slow moving and before it picks up too much momentum.
This picture is the first of my affordable edition prints and is available for only US$25.00 until the edition of 100 is all sold out - This is art you can't not afford to buy
Willow #7, Tin Can Hill - from the Immersive Landscapes - Boreal Forest/Precambrian Shield Project - is an 7 1/2"x9 1/2" pigment ink print on Silver Rag paper, signed and numbered on the reverse.
I'm following Julian Thomas' model of 25x100 - only100 prints for 25.00 each. But there are of course the existing smaller "traditional" editions available in 11x14 and 20x24
This picture is already in a couple of major collections - The Getty Museum Research Institute in LA and the Provincial Art Collection of Alberta.
Simply click on the link in the sideabar to buy (25.00 + 10.50 shipping to wherever you are).
(If you are in Canada, email me at the link in the sidebar, as shipping is a bit cheaper. I will also take USPS International Money Orders - again, email for details. And let me know if the Paypal button isn't working - it seems a bit fussy to set up...)
Finally, it was a comment by the inimitable Luis Gottandi that got me going seriously on this:
"If for no other reason, this is a good idea in that it breaks through the dominant marketing conventions of the day. Yes, I hope it works and taps into a fringe segment of the market that has been waiting for a long time for such an opportunity.
A lot of potential buyers have had to make do with posters and/or sidewalk-show imagery, yet are educated, savvy and hunger for more.
The world of the arts merchants has encysted itself in its own drag shadow for decades now, and is, historically speaking, overly ripe for change."
And why Looking Glass Editions? Perhaps turning things topsy turvy like Alice... and of course every photograph is in some ways like a mirror - and sometimes we only see as in a glass, darkly.
