DYE TRANSFER

19 X 2 2

LIVE IMAGE SIZE 15X1 5

I worked in Hollywood ( POST PRODUCTION ) from the Early to Late 80' photographing and printing one sheets ( MOVIE POSTERS ) and Record Album Covers. The grouping of images are vast and rare. All images were made for scanning and printing for all the various promotional mediums. Some were used and some were never used making them very rare. All images were made on DYE TRANSFER or CIBACHROME for their sharpness and color saturation. Many of the images were sent out for air brushing to enhance or clean up the final cover art. Many are of several images stripped on one print or transfer then retouched. Most that I have are the originals before retouching. I will be listing many of these images over the next few weeks.

The print has a small creases around the white boarder but the live image is good small imperfection are present but may not be visible when matted and framed.

This was the First Version concept for the Album Cover Mathmatics that was rejected.

The tear seen in the image is actually a tear in the original 2 1/4 transparency. We were ready to pay for the retouching but the client thought it made the concept even better. As it was the concept was scrapped.

The Image is certainly "one of a kind".
