Shaded Park Path

Shaded Park Path

This deep-brown carbon print is essentially a third generation print after the original cyanotype version of the same title with link below. Compared to this version, the photographer made another working print and emphasized a series of four tree trunks located in the highlighted horizon line area of the frame by drawing them in. This matrix was then rephotographed with the negative used to make this final study in carbon.

My original description of this landscape study from the cyanotype:
A landscape study with emphasis on shadows and highlights with the focal point being a dirt pathway leading from the lower image margin’s foreground to a highlighted area in the background is seen in this photograph. Possibly taken in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park, as many known examples from this location were done by an Unknown Brooklyn amateur photographer whose surviving work was discovered in a trunk in the American South.
