silver gelatin print - limited edition

This Thursday, photographer David Piemonte will be the featured artist on the big art wall.  His image, Cressy's Light, will be on exhibit from July 5th until July 18th.  The photograph is a limited edition silver gelatin print .  It measures 25" x 29" framed and is priced at $850.00. 

David describes his work as follows:  "I work completely with black and white film and develop my prints in a wet darkroom.  There are no digital manipulations in my work."
"Cressy's Beach is at the far end of Stage Fort Park in Gloucester, and the serpent you see on the rock is the original painting that was there for over 40 years "
"This image was taken around midnight during a full moon, with a 20-minute exposure.  You will notice the shadows of trees on the rock in the background.  During the long exposure, the stream of light across the horizon was created by the movement of fishing boats going out to sea."

You can see more of David's work at Rocky Neck Gallery open 7 days a week.
