This past winter my New Year's Resolution was to start (not finish, just start) a photography collection. This is Benita at Home, Hagerstown, Maryland, by Patricia Dalzell. Initially inspired by Renaissance painters, Pat has been making portraits with an old 4x5 and a Goerz lens for many years. The picture area is 7 and 3/8ths inches high by 5 and 7/8ths inches wide.
Pat likes her work framed with a mat board that matches the white of the paper and a wood frame that matches the dark tones of the photograph; Frames By Rebecca in Silver Spring, Maryland, where Pat's had her framing done since 1978, has a dark stain they call "Dalzell."
