iPhoneography to Photogravure

I used my iPhone on a trip to Maui to create this capture of the Baldwin house in Iao Valley.  I knew I wanted to depict this image in a manner that made you feel the early history not only of the home, but of the ancient landscape.

Working as a team at Flatbed Press with Master Printer, Tracy Mayrello, and Printer, Cordelia Blanchard, we spent a day of trial proofing photogravures from a solar plate of my image (made with the assistance of Master Printer, Katherine Brimberry).  From that day of press and ink work, one proof was chosen for the final editioning.  Here is our color trial proof (CTP) choice, we will be making an edition of 15 chine collé, à la poupée, photo gravures as soon as my shipment of green Kozo paper arrives.  This is part of a long term series I am working on: Telescoping Landscapes.
