With the help of a pocket size English to Italian dictionary, I was able to make my way around the island of Sicily.  “Spare Parts” is a photo I made along the eastern coast of Sicily about 1977.  In 1977-78 I had the good fortune to spend six months in Sicily. I brought back many images and many more memories from that time so long ago. I spent countless hours walking along the coastlines of many small towns in Sicily.  The dinghy in this image, seemingly discarded along the harbor wall, was likely used by the local fishermen to repair their seaworthy craft.

  • This is the exact matted original 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.
