traffic-contact-sheet

 

We found this contact print in a filing cabinet bursting with prints from the 60s and 70s of English bands on the road. Ah … those were the days when photographers could take pictures anywhere and everywhere.

Waiting backstage, in their dressing room, here’s Chris Wood with Jim Capaldi and Steve Winwood – the boys from Traffic – waiting to go onstage.  The contact sheet fix solution has decayed a little but gives the print a wonderful earthy brown tone.

This print measuring 16″ x 20″ (41 x 51 cms) is ready-to-frame. It is an Archival Giclée* print on 260gsm Photo Lustre paper, hand numbered and signed by Chris’s sister, Steph Wood.

The deadline for ordering this edition is Monday December  5 2016… and there are no time extensions. This print can be found in editions numbered 232-264

*Giclée prints are a by-word for fine art prints and the preferred medium for museums and photographic galleries. Giclée prints are made in either a 10 or 12 colour process (as opposed to standard 4-colour CMYK). They are printed at 1200 dpi (magazines are generally 300 dpi) using Archival inks to create an image that has a richness of tone with a higher degree of accuracy than is available than any other reproduction technique. Since the inks are UV stable, Giclée prints will last a lifetime.

The Giclée prints offered within this enhanced edition will only be available during the pre-ordering period.

This poster edition is limited to a maximum of 33 only – with three artists proofs being created. Should this edition not reach its maximum take-up, the quantity pre-ordered will constitute the final edition number.

Important Shipping Details: Each book-set will be dispatched by courier delivery. Posters will be dispatched separately.
