[Contact Sheet Self Portrait]
Gelatin silver print
64 x 42 in
Provided by the artist - Karl Baden
"About 50 contact sheet self-portraits were made over a three-month period in 1980. For each, a roll of 35 exposures was taken of various parts of my body, usually in close-up. The roll was processed normally and printed, without alteration or manipulation, as a contact sheet.
This work was originally supposed to be enlarged, but, due to one thing or another, it took more than a decade before even a few of them were printed approximately 64x42 inches." (Kard Baden, May 16, 2007)
