I don't know if you are aware of the Rosenfled collection at Mystic Seaport:

Their work is a key inspiration for my hobby photography, but I still haven't tried using a 4x5 from the boat yet.

If you grew up in Halifax Nova Scotia your parents had at least one MacAskill hanging on a wall somewhere in the house.

This is very reminiscent of the style of Winslow Homer. Sailboats are always interesting.

Fascinating. The gallery offers VERY, VERY good value as well! Makes me want to get out the ol' platinum for the afternoon! I might well buy a print from them for my Christmas Prezzy..

Ah, the good old 8X10 glass plate, the only light sensitive medium that was flat and didn't move as it absorbed moisture during long exposures. pre digital of course.
Beautiful tonality in the printing.
Thanks, Mike

The first photographic print I ever purchased (way before I had any interest in photography) was a MacAskill print for my wife (then girlfriend) who was and is a sailing nut. It's still hanging on the wall in the den. And oddly enough, I wasn't born here but ended up living in Halifax :)

I saw that image, and my mind just went, "pop".

True beauty.

Wow!

One of most impressive photographs I've seen online. Too bad they don't ship to my country.
