"On Alberta Street" - Portland Oregon - 24"x10" Photographic Etching - Original Art

This is an original, hand-pulled, photographic etching print of the wonderful Alberta District in Portland, Oregon. This is an adapted view of the area around 2011. It now also represents the humble days before more development of the area occurred.

To make my photographic montage etchings, I start by taking photos of buildings and signs I want to use, then I compose my scenes on the computer creating a photomontage, fitting the most culturally significant objects together like a puzzle into a cohesive scene.

To make the etching plates, I use a polymer photogravure technique to translate the photographic elements into printed form and then combine several plates into a single scene. I ink the plates with Akua water-based ink, and print them on Rives BFK cotton-based paper. Each square in the artwork is a different plate. It all comes together when I run the final through on an etching press – pictured above.

Each print is numbered, hand signed, and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
