1 Image, 1 Print

April 20, 2014

I have been thinking about editions ever since I placed my work at Saatchi Online and was prompted to choose the edition size of each piece. I was looking at John Paul Capinigro’s website once and he was offering editions of his prints where the price went up with each new print sale, in order to ensure the future value of the work while at the same time enabling him to print multiple editions. I think that this is a very clever approach to the problem of editions. I think that all artists who work in reproducible mediums have grappled with this problem. Do we make limited or open editions? Do we limit our work to one print per image in order to make each piece more valuable? Brett Weston burned most of his negatives on his 81st birthday.
For some time now I have been toying with the idea of limiting my production to one print per image. I would do this partially for the value it would place on each piece, but also for the fact that I would rather not keep revisiting the old work. I’m more interested in producing new work.
I may select certain photos for limited additions, but I think for the most part I am going to end up making one print for each image. The next question is do I burn my DVD’s when I turn 81?
