Yes, I agree. Large prints have made
their way into many homes as a showcase piece of artwork. It has put
photography in a place were it is being noticed. Look in interior design
magazines and they all have large scale photographs hanging on the walls of the
homes they are featuring. Small images create a more intimate feel and are
displayed in settings that the viewer can get close to. In other fine arts,
one will always find a diversity of sizes of images that reflect what the
artist is trying to impress upon the viewer. Why should photography be
confined to a small scale?
Wee little prints are just fine for the right
image, as are huge ones. I hope and trust no one ever curses you and
things you've devoted yourself to doing in an ugly and boorish manner.

Yes, is it not a fact about big. I am so tired at this
fad with huge prints I want to vomit. I hope the people making those huge
prints never sell a one of them and have to build new storage rooms to hold
them until their descendants destroy the atrocities.
Now, a nice 5X7 contact print, there is something to
hold close to your eyes and treasure.

It's an American French Tool Press by Conrad Machine Co. I got a table
top model that will handle 18" wide paper. It may also be a great
pasta machine. Josephine Sacabo had just gotten the big brother to this
machine when I worked with her last fall on polymer plate photogravure-it was
great fun. Unfortunately it takes 3-4 months to build and deliver.
I think I got "big" out of my system with inkjet printing hehehehe.
It's AlIVE! IT'S ALIVE! THE ALT PHOTO LIST IS ALIVE!!!! Chris must
have given it an enema.

Congrats on the press Mark! What kind did you
But 'little'? I'm doing 20x30" now and they are available at
30x40"...and even larger, so I've been told.
Larger plates present a new set of problems, but they are still alot of fun to
work with (more so when the pesky contact issues have been overcome).
