Monkey Gone to Heaven: a pint, a print and an exhibition.

Monkey Gone to Heaven: a pint, a print and an exhibition.

In keeping with Vaughan Oliver’s current exhibition of Pixies sleeve artworks and designs, at Greenwich University, London,  I thought it timely to post a reminder link of my rare and limited hand-made silver gelatine lith prints.

Recent Updates July 2015

During the month of July 2015, I have renewed my presence on Instagram under the hashtag #simonlarbalestier please follow my work on this platform. I have also revamped my Photoshelter galleries with a new template layout using Pivot, designed by the Photoshelter team and optimised for mobile devices.  Over the next few months I will be migrating all my archive (photographs and projects from 1985-2014) to my LightRocket Archive, reserving the Photoshelter galleries for my PhD research, and experimental projects using photographs and writing – pertaining to specific photos or bodies of work, both past and present. All photograph on both websites are for sale (either as archival digital c-types  or silver gelatin hand-prints) –  although there is now a very limited availability of silver gelatin chlorbromide prints, from my own darkroom. Please email me at info@simon-larbalestier.co.uk for print specifications, prices and availability.

Forest #1, 1990/2015, Tuscany, Italy. 

 

On the last day of 2014 I decided to print an old favourite of mine entitled Forest #1 using my ancient Leitz Focomat 1c enlarger from the late 50’s and the Gene Nocon F-stop timer (popular in the late 80’s) – both pieces of equipment still in perfect working order. The negative was shot in 1990 on Ilford FP4 using a Leica M4 with 35/2 summicron lens (the fabled version 4) and hand-printed by the photographer in 2015, on 12″ x16″ Adox Nuance fibre paper. The print is a split-selenium toned silver gelatin print, that has been processed using archival methods. Presented as a Special Limited Edition Set of 15 prints only. Each print is stamped, titled, numbered, dated and signed by the photographer on the verso and comes with a certificate of authenticity. Please email me at info@simon-larbalestier.co.uk for payment details and shipping info. All prints are shipped from the United Kingdom. To see the print online please go HERE.
