Opp, Alabama by Scott Eiden. A limited edition c-print available at 20x200.
From the 20x200 blog:
Opp, Alabama is an especially special analog edition from Brooklyn-based, Northwest-bred gentleman photographer Scott Eiden, who makes his pictures the old-fashioned way: with a Deardorff Field Camera and a whole mess of chemicals.
As I said during my presentation on Monday night at the The Minnesota Center for Photography, technology is a key component in making 20x200 go, go, go. We'd be hard pressed to develop such a far-flung and enthusiastic collector crowd without the website or the newsletter, the 20x200 dream team would be lost without IM and, to date, all of our prints have been produced digitally.
So, yes, I am a lover of the digital technology, but that doesn't mean that I don't mourn the diminishing presence of our analog past, photographic and otherwise. That's why today's edition is such a treat.
Opp, Alabama is editioned in 3 sizes, all of which are traditional Chromogenic prints on Kodak Supra N paper, created from an 8"x10" negative. The edition of 200 are 8.5"x11" contact prints with black borders. (The medium and large sizes, 20"x24" and 30"x40" respectively, have white borders.)
The traditional process of the actual prints is a fitting echo to the bricks-and-mortar solidity of the building depicted. Dean's Pharmacy is a sturdy, yet beleaguered, artifact of our small-town heritage, buffeted by the relentless encroachment of service-road, strip mall America.
