As promised, here's an opportunity to buy a print of "Summer Storm, Chicago" by Chicago-area photographer Ken Tanaka. The picture was originally posted as a comment to one of our posts, and so many people liked it that I asked Ken if we could offer a print to readers, and he agreed.
The picture was taken with a 35mm ultra-wide-angle lens on a Mamiya 645 AFD III with a PhaseOne P65+ back. It was taken at a slow shutter speed so there is very slight blurring in some of the cars, trees, and fountain, and there is rain falling in part of the landscape; and the print is dark and subtle and will need to be displayed in good lighting. But it's a gorgeous print, rich and dramatic. It's printed by the photographer on 11x14" Ilford Gold Fibre Silk paper (image area approximately 9.5 x 12.75"). It's a 310gsm weight paper, 20% gloss (semi-gloss) with a "traditional" photo paper baryta base. Prints will be signed on the reverse.
Note: The sale is limited to 50 prints (unfortunately, that's all the printing Ken has time for). I'll keep the offer open for five days (until sundown, Sunday, July 11th) or until we reach 50 orders, whichever comes first.
~~~SORRY, SOLD OUT~~~
Shipping is included in the price.An order via PayPal will automatically reserve a print for you. If you prefer to send a personal check, that's fine, but you will need to send me an email (just one!) with your name, shipping address, and number of prints you're purchasing to reserve your order. (Please, just one email!) If you only mail a check, the 50 print limit might have been reached before your check gets here.
The first orders will be shipped on Friday; last orders should allow up to four weeks for delivery (but probably won't take that long).
With PayPal payments, prints will be shipped to the address in the PayPal order, so please make sure I have the proper address with your order. If it's different than your PayPal address, you can add it in the "comment" field with your payment. Please do not count on emailing me separately with a different shipping address! (Really, you do not want to test my organizational [dis]abilities to that extent, take my word for that....)
We've settled on having four TOP print sales per year. This is the third of four sales for 2010; the last one for the year will be in September. My sincere thanks to Ken for making this possible.
UPDATE: As of 2:15 p.m. there are 19 prints left.
UPDATE #2: Sold out, as of 4:06 p.m.
