Chaco Culture Historic Nation Park
Fine Art Chromogenic Print
I created this photograph at Chaco Culture National Historical Park while traveling New Mexico.
The Chacoan sites are part of the homeland of Pueblo Indian peoples of New Mexico, the Hopi Indians of Arizona, and the Navajo Indians of the Southwest. Today the massive buildings of the Ancestral Puebloan people still testify to the organizational and engineering abilities not seen anywhere else in the American Southwest. In recognition of its rich archaeological resources, Chaco Culture NHP is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. Chaco’s national and international significance is based on its approximately 4,000 prehistoric and historic archaeological sites, representing more than 10,000 years of human cultural history in Chaco Canyon.
50% of the proceeds from each print sale will be donated in your name to the First Nations Development Institute's Native Arts Initiative - with the goal of stimulating long-term perpetuation, proliferation and revitalization of traditional artistic and cultural assets in Native communities.
❖ PRINT DETAILS ❖
• My original prints are professionally printed on archival Kodak (chemical print) paper.
• My original prints are created using a Digital Chromogenic-Type Process: images are digitally exposed and then developed using silver based photographic chemicals.
❖ PAPER FINISH ❖
● Metallic Glossy ●
This paper has the traditional look of glossy paper with an added bonus: the silver content of the paper is higher than normal, so physical particles (very very tiny ones!) hold in the emulsion of the paper.
The result when my images are printed this way is a print with an extra pop, almost a 3-dimensional look that changes dependent on its lighting, almost as if lit from behind.
❖ PACKAGING DETAILS ❖
• Your print will be shipped flat for orders up to 16x24" and rolled for orders 20x30"
