Silver Gelatin Prints are the traditional type of prints which were made when these photos were taken. They are exposed in a darkroom and process in wet chemistry. They have a unique look which, while well mimicked by contemporary ink jet prints, retain a unique character considered the most valuable by collectors. This 20 x 24” Silver Gelatin Print is a special sepia toned edition of 50, signed by Elliott. The photograph appeared in The Band’s debut album, Music From Big Pink, in 1968.
The retail price of the book is $500 and the print is normally $5,000 (savings equal $400)
