One of the two prints we will be offering at full
size for the first time next Monday
Just a heads up. Our Fall print sale, which as usual will run for five days, starts next Monday at 10 a.m. Eastern U.S. time and ends at the end of the day on Friday. Just so you're aware. (Not everybody who reads TOP visits every week or even every month, so with every sale I field anguished protests from people who missed the entire five days of the sale.)
It will consist of full-sized, signed 16x20-inch silver prints of Peter Turnley's two most popular photographs of Paris, for delivery before Christmas. We've offered both before, but in smaller sizes.
The "Vive la France" sale is what I've been calling it, unofficially. The offer was planned before the recent attacks on "the beautiful city." Peter has lived in France for 37 years, and speaks fluent French, and ranks among people like Henri Cartier-Bresson, Willy Ronis, and his own late great friend and mentor Robert Doisneau as one of the great photographers of the city of Paris. It's only natural that he was deeply affected by the recent attacks on the heart of his adopted home, and accordingly some of the proceeds of our sale will go to the French Red Cross for the aid of the victims and their families. Paris has come together. We all want to help each other be strong, stay compassionate, and let love, peace and freedom win.
These will not be Voja prints—he's not available to print this year—but Voja has seen these prints and approves them. They are signed fiber-base silver-gelatin prints exactly like the ones that sell in galleries for $1,200. The photographs celebrate what Paris has come to symbolize for so many people all over the World...love, lyrical beauty, conviviality and camraderie, and the good life.
The prices for these prints are the lowest either print has ever been offered for. I should also mention that TOP's share of Peter's book and print sales are a significant part of this site's annual earnings, and definitely help bring you The Online Photographer (still free!) every day, so buyers of these prints are making a contribution to TOP as well.
