    Humble Servant   Hand-coated Silver Gelatin emulsion on Arches Watercolour paper, 22"x30"   “If photography is allowed to supplement art in some of its functions, it will soon have supplanted or corrupted it altogether, thanks to the stupidity of the multitude which is its natural ally. It is time, then, for it to return to its true duty, which is to be the servant of the sciences and arts— but the very humble servant, like printing or shorthand, which have neither created nor supplemented literature.” (Charles Baudelaire, Salon of 1859)
