Bliss features over fifty unique dye-destruction prints transformed as editioned objects on a monumental scale; the culmination of almost forty years practice using this material. The making of dye-destruction prints will reach a necessary end in 2016; the unique objects of the past transitioning into a repository for the future. 

Bliss celebrates the beginning of this new era, in the form of a richly illustrated artists’ book. In a limited run of six hundred, each book includes a signed and numbered Lambda c-print from a choice of forty-nine available images, approximately 20 x 24” according to individual format, with each image limited to an edition of ten.
