The color photographs are pigmented inkjet prints made with an Epson 2200 printer. The paper currently is either Epson Ultra Premium Presentation Papaer or Moab Entrada Natural. Image size varies; exhibition prints are generally 12"x18" although some older images are smaller, having been made with a different camera.

The black and white photographs began as silver-gelatin prints but I stopped making silver prints in the winter of 2003 (although I still retain the darkroom), so current copies of these images are available as pigmented inkjet prints as well, again on Moab Entrada Natural paper or, lately, Ilford Gold Fibre Silk.

Any exhibition photographs are over-matted to 24"x28", that size seeming to be a good compromise when hanging the square and rectangular images together.
