Fotovision is pleased to offer the first portfolio of fine prints for photography lovers. You can help us continue to invite important photographers to teach and lecture, fund our efforts to capture their teachings on film and to produce our documentary workshops by purchasing gelatin silver prints at below market prices. Fotovision offers several ways to buy either a portfolio of five prints in a handmade case or individual prints. Please visit our website for more information.
The image above, by documentary photographer and teacher Ken Light, is my favorite of the bunch. I absolutely love the way he has timed and layered the image. The cotton choppers, whose faces we do not see, have their heads bowed down to the ground and hard at work. It is an ominous reminder of how life once was and how sometimes things continue to be for an often ignored section of society. The image was shot at the Sherard Plantation in Sherard, Mississippi, in 1992.
I urge you all to support this fine print program and start collecting some great art!
