Walkabouts in Blue – Portfolio Update

The drop is coming this weekend, Saturday 2/12/22! The marketplace is still being determined, but will be shared here first. Here are some additional details about the project, process, and how the physically backed NFT will function:

Project Statement: I walkabout with my camera in tow, typically off the beaten path, and frequently during the early hours of the day. My eye is attracted to the often overlooked and neglected, the scenes that many people look right through or just avoid looking at altogether. When the light and the scene combine to express a story I connect with, I capture it, and quickly move on. Many of my subjects may be considered unkempt, littered, or vandalized, but there is a beauty and poetry to these scenes that is fascinating to me. This project will be dropped in groups of 10 as portfolios are completed and printed.

Process Statement: The photographs in this portfolio were captured digitally and printed with the cyanotype process using digital inkjet negatives. I enjoy bridging history with technology, so being able to do a series of cyanotype prints from the 19th century, that uses digital image capture technology that first emerged in the 20th century, and is being minted and sold on a network that is a new technology in the 21st century was just too appealing for me not to create. All of the photographic work is unique and was created by me over the past few months. I also hand mixed the chemistry, coated the paper, produced the digital negatives, and exposed and processed all prints myself. The images are printed on 9×12” Stonehenge Aqua, 140lb, printed image area is approximately 6×9”. Each print is a unique one of a kind object due to the nature of hand-coating emulsion using the method I employ (brush-defined edges).

Rights Statement: Owners of the NFT have full legal ownership of the associated physical print, and may request it be sent to them at any time by redeeming the NFT to the creator. Until such time that the NFT is redeemed for the associated print, the print will be considered ‘on loan’ to the artist. Usage rights for both the NFT and the physical print include all personal use, including reproduction of the image in other formats, and exhibition of the image in public settings. No commercial rights are included with this NFT and the owner may not directly profit off the associated intellectual property, however, they are welcome to collect, resell, or trade the NFT in lieu of redeeming it for the physical print and may directly profit in doing so.

Marketplace details and mint price will be announced here this Wednesday – stay tuned.
