Cobblestone Road to Lower Manhattan Skyline in Golden Light

$ 7,500
  • Description
    Magical golden light skims off a 19th-century cobblestone road that appears to lead into an equally antique-looking lower Manhattan skyline illuminated with golden light.
    As a progenitor of special effects photography and experimental photography in the late 1960s and early 1970s, Mitchell Funk employed a variety of non-digital techniques to achieve, consciousness-expanding images. In "Cobblestone Road to Lower Manhattan Skyline in Golden Light " the then-young photographer used analog post-production techniques to merge two like-minded images together so they look purposely somewhat real and somewhat unreal.
    The work is signed dated and numbered 3/15 lower right recto, other sizes available, printed later, unframed. This work is printed on fine art Hahnemuhle paper. The color will vary from monitor to monitor.
