PHOTOGRAPHS | Dennis Letbetter

The Photographs in this book were all exposed on the same day, 30 April 1985, in a house new to Jane and me in the Haight Ashbury district of San Francisco. It is a Queen Anne Victorian constructed in 1896 by architect Robert Dickie Cranston, the grandfather of Senator Alan Cranston. All the images were made with an 8 x 10 camera and printed on Azo paper using a slight variation of Edward Weston's Amidol developer. These photographs, made for entirely personal reasons, now see the light of day due largely to the thoughtful instigation of two dear friends, Amy and Virginie

Jane is printed in a first edition of 1000 copies. Twenty-six lettered copies are signed and include a signed original contact print on Azo paper by the artist. Designed by Jack W. Stauffacher of The Greenwood Press. Printing by Phelps/Schaefer. Binding by Cardoza-James Bindery. San Francisco.
