|These prints are toned black and white photographs. The technical term is toned gelatin silver print.
The image is made of grains of silver suspended in an emulsion of gelatin that is coated on a pure fiber base paper. The toning is a type of sepia toning that has been practiced for many years. The print is considered permanent.
The camera is a medium. The film is Kodak. The paper that the print is made on is German made. They are dry mounted on acid free foam core with an acid free rag board mat. The prints are made and finished to museum specifications for permanence.
A new hardcover book has just been released, The Spirit of Sailing: A Celebration of Sea and Sail featuring over 80 of Kahn’s exquisite photographs. It has been a very popular gift item and is now available at the gallery for $20.
On a personal note, I enjoyed looking through Michaels book, feasting my eyes on his beautiful images and reading the wonderful poetry and writings by all the literary artists who wrote about sailing and the sea with such wisdom and emotion.
