Each day of my time there, I was treated to a different aspect of the harbors along the Sicilian coast. In 1977-78 I had the privilege of living six months in Sicily. I returned to the States with many images and many more memories from that time so long ago.
I spent countless hours waiting for just the right lighting to capture the dinghies in the harbor which were mostly used by local fishermen.
The fish in the local markets could not be any more fresh.
It was not unusual to see the men clean their fish and take them directly to what we called the “flea markets” in the downtown areas of many small towns. These markets had all manner of fresh food as well as trinkets and textiles which added layers of excitement to my time there.

This is the exact matted print you will receive.
Your purchase includes an original Black & White handmade silver gelatin fine art print by Tim Dardis. I made the original Black & White photograph, I hand processed the film and then enlarged the negative and hand pocessed the Black & White photographic paper in my own darkroom. The finished image is then hand signed and "finger printed". That "finger print" is the assurance you are getting everything original from start to finish. I hope you love what I make!
The artwork includes an archival mounted silver gelatin print. A Certified Picture Framer (CPF) creates, by hand, the french lines, acid free mat board and backing. The lost art of French lines are added to enhance the display. (See video.)
Your new artwork, my hand written story about the art itself as well as the Certificate of Authenticity is placed in a protective sleeve and shipped to your address in a protective box. Your new artwork is ready to install in your frame and hang on the wall.
The only digital process involved is displaying it online.
Packaging and shipping is free! Thank you for being a collector of fine art photography.
