Wine Still Life

Wine Still Life
2014/2014
Daguerreotype (1/2 plate)
in glass mount
0 x 0 in. (0 x 0 mm)
Signed, titled and dated on the verso. In painted glass mounts that are secured in handmade paper holders. One of two wine still lifes made, but both are unique variants.Mike Robinson's Century Darkroom in Toronto has gained a reputation in several alternative photographic processes. Robinson's work in the daguerreotype combines a classical sense of beauty with the high level of technical skill required for success in this difficult photographic medium. His unique contribution to the modern daguerreotype has gained increasing recognition, and a series of Mike's daguerreotypes were recently commissioned for the holdings of the Hallmark Photographic Collection.He often houses his images in modern handcrafted cases and passé-partout mounts that resemble the older cases from France and the United States. This combination of old and new approaches is one of the things that distinguish Mike's work.
Price: $4,000 (ref. 14393)
