Hey Robert - I am thrilled to be purchasing "Power and Beauty." Before I check out, I just wanted to ask: is there any place I can get an even larger version of the photo? Thank you in advance; it's an absolutely wonderful piece.

Thanks for your great work. I live in NYC and this image tells it all. I love it!

Many thanks - I am old school. And old(sorta). I shot it in the Midwood section of Brooklyn. It's on Coney Island Avenue where the population is Arab, Turkish, Russian and Hassidic. It makes for some wonderful signage.

Hi Robert, where was "Homage to Walker Evans" taken? I love it! It looks old school.

Open Editions, Closed Editions and Free Range Photography I was asked recently why I offer open editions of a lot of my images. The following is an effort to clarify my thoughts and feelings on the subject. The concept of limited editions is a tricky one, especially when applied to photography. Ansel Adams didn’t do limited editions; his photographs now sell for a lot of money. His negatives are kept under strict supervision, preventing the unscrupulous from selling prints. Brett Weston destroyed all but a few negatives (which he scratched and gave to a university for study purposes) before he died. Unlike lithography and etching, negatives don’t wear out with repeated printing. Neither do digital files. There is a story about the aforementioned Ansel Adams printing “Moonrise Over Hernandez” twenty years after taking the picture, and finally being satisfied with the print. He also compared the negative to the score and the print to the performance. Limiting an edition w

Robert Ullmann 8/30/2010 | 8:47 PM

Good question - and here are the answers- First, it's a matter of finances - I derive my income from the repeated sale of images. This has been the traditional mode for many years. Secondly If an image is to be sold as a limited or closed edition the pricing has to be much higher or the edition much larger. Thirdly, unlike lithographs or etching, there is no plate to be destroyed, and photographers are loathe to destroy their negatives or files. Fourth - it's harder to guarantee that the edition is limited - a printing plate wears out and a print pulled from such a plate is apparent to a serious collector (think of all the re-worked and crummy looking Goya plates that have been printed to death). However, digital files and negatives are a lot longer lived, and don't show the wear and tear that etchings, lithographs and the like do one multiple printings. Sixth, and last - I would like my work to be available to as many people as possible who can afford the reasonable prices c

Why does he do open editions rather than limited? As a collector I would prefer a little scarcity.
