Lot description
Alvin Booth, Untitled (9902300), 1999. Toned and bleached silver print, printed by the artist and in the artist's frame. Framed size is 30 x 20 inches (76.2 x 50.8 cm). Edition 5 of 10. Signed, titled and dated.

Alvin Booth creates a unique synthesis of classical nude photography -- using traditional camera and laboratory techniques as well as classical materials -- and contemporary formal approaches to the theme. Booth uses labor-intensive techniques, through which he produces grainy sepia-toned gelatin silver prints, peppered with burn marks or other calculated effects of distress. These are printed on matte paper, the texture of which evokes early photographic efforts. Taken as a whole, such effects create a pastiche of the history of the medium.
