Title: QE2 passing the World Trade Center
Seller ID: forssprint
FORSS, GEORGE. QE2 passing the World Trade Center, New York, 1977 (printed August 1983). Gelatin silver print, about 13x18 inches or 33x46cm, matted and framed at 18x24 or 46x61cm, stylus-indented signature by Forss in the lower right corner, other stylus notes giving photo and print dates and the lens used ("50mm XENON"). Forss was an unknown New York City street photographer who reputedly got discovered in 1980 by David Douglas Duncan, a Life magazine photographer who was stopped in his tracks by the Forss image on sale here. Since then Forss has been the subject of serious media attention and has removed himself to upstate New York. The print here is exceptionally large, larger than similar prints that have sold at auction at a higher price. I temporarily removed it from the frame to photograph it glare-free. The signature does not show in my photos because it is simply an indentation in the print, involving no ink or graphite. Condition of this print: Fine, no flaws; minor blemishing to the Plexiglas cover.
