To mark the end of the Arts Council England funded R&D (research & development) phase of The George Richmond Portrait Project by Elly Clarke, there will be a sale of 25 6″x4″ Single Edition photographs, taken during shoots that Elly and her team have been on over the past 6 months, in England, Scotland and the Channel Islands.
Over a period of 5 days, from Tuesday 19th August, 3 signed, rubber stamped, single edition 6″x4″ photos will be released for sale each day, via Flickr / Facebook and Twitter, for £45 for 24 hours before going up to £60 until Tuesday 26th August, and then £75 for a month.
Of these 15 photos, the three that attract the most likes on Facebook (by the end of the 7th day) will be offered for sale as hand prints printed by Elly Clarke in the darkroom, in an edition of 5.
Elly needs to sell a minimum of 10 photos from this Single Edition series to make this possible – to pay for darkroom hire, paper and so on. If successful, the five will be announced and offered for sale after that as a separate event.
All photos in this sale are taken on film- either with my Leica M6 or medium format camera (in which case the dimensions are slightly different.)
Money raised will go towards the next phase of this project, which is a book and an exhibition…
The project follows on from other Alternative Funding Projects I have done – most recently this: https://www.facebook.com/events/782747055084461/
