Print Two of Five, and Edition ONE of FIVE. Media includes five colors of oil based, Charbonnel brand etching inks on STONEHENGE cream colored paper. The studio techniques employed include Intaglio, Drypoint, and Chine Collé. The etching plate required five plate re-workings and acid baths. This etching, a part of my New Orleans Series, was inspired by a 1930’s photo by Frances Benjamin Johnson, born 1864 and died 1952. She was one of the few recognized women photographers of her era. Her photograph, entitled “701 Bourbon Street, corner Saint Peters Street, New Orleans, Orleans Parish, Louisiana”. Her photo, which reflects the documentary aspects within her creative eye, is part of the Washington DC Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division, The Carnegie Survey of the Architecture of the South, Call Number is LC-J7-LA- 1011 PP. I used a single zinc plate, which measured six-inches high by nine inches wide, or 15.24cm by 22.86cm. The paper print measures 11.2 inches high by 15 inches wide 28cm x 38.100cm.
