#403. "Cleveland 1967," - 16" x 20" Silver Gelatin Print

As the story goes; in 1967, Charles was experimenting with grainy images and enlarged a small section of a 35 mm. negative to achieve this brooding image. The technical info is: Tri X, pushed to ISO 1600, developed in Acufine. The textual boarder was added to the first print in black ink. Charles then made a series of 4 in. by 5 in. inter negatives to create the final print. Click on the image for an enlargement.

#406. "Lake Erie Sunset," 16" x 20" Silver Gelatin Print

Attention water lovers: This dramatic piece is a large 16 inch by 20 inch Fine Arts Silver Gelatin Print on Ilford double weight paper. This full frame 35 mm. image was captured in the late 1980's and is entitled "Lake Erie Sunset." This hand crafted image is printed, titled and signed by the artist. The actual image measures approximately 18.5 inches by 12.5 inches.

Lake Erie has a reputation for spectacular sunsets and this is a very unusual moment, the mirror like lake illuminated under a Black sky. The air is particularly clear, the horizon relatively sharp. The dark strip under the crisp horizon clearly marks the deepest water and the shallower bottom is reflected below as it combines with the mouth of the river. There are only three boats on the glassy water, a freighter, a tiny speed boat and the tour boat "Good Times." The water looks like liquid silver. Notice the tiny light shinning in the light house, the shutter timed perfectly as the beam spun around.

This image was captured from the roof of the artists studio in the late 1980s. This particular Gichrist studio was located on the eighth floor of the Bradley Building on West 6th street in the Cleveland warehouse district. This gorgeous Silver Gelatin Print must be see to be appreciated. It holds rich blacks, beautiful silver grays and brilliant whites. In person, this print shimmers!

#412. "Tower Reflection," 16" x 20" Silver Gelatin Print

Attention Cleveland lovers: This offering is an 16 inch by 20 inch Fine Arts Silver Gelatin Print entitled "Tower Reflection," a trippy image of the famous Terminal Tower of Cleveland, Ohio, reflected in another building. This beautifully designed, full frame 35 mm. image is printed, titled and signed by the artist. The image measures approximately 18.75 inches by 12.5 inches and is printed on Ilford double weight 16 inch by 20 inch paper.

This low resolution Net image doesn't do the print justice. It holds a full range of tones from deep black to brilliant white and is very sharp. This image was captured in the early 80's and is part of an ongoing series of Gilchrist photographs entitled "City Textures." For a few weeks a year, as the sun moves north, it strikes the north face of the Terminal Tower. Charles planed this image for months, waiting for the light. For many years, prior to the Cleveland Renaissance, the Terminal Tower was the largest and tallest building in downtown Cleveland and is still the heart of Public Square.

#411. "Nature's Protest: 1968," - 16" x 20" Silver Gelatin Print

This dramatic image is a 16 inch by 20 inch Fine Arts Silver Gelatin Print on double weight Ilford paper entitled "Natures Protest: 1968." This Cleveland image was captured in a 1968 winter storm at the edge of Lake Erie. The hand crafted print is titled and signed by the artist in black ink. The image size is 18.5 inches by 12.25 inches. This low resolution Net image doesn't do the print justice. It's very dramatic and atmospheric with a full range of rich tones.

At that time (late 60's) Charles was experimenting with grainy images and this large print was made from a 4 inch by 5 inch negative created from a small section of the original 35 mm. negative. We asked the artist about this image and he said: "I remember 1968 as a hard year. Two of my heroes, Martin Luther King Jr. and Bobby Kennedy had been assassinated and the Country was being torn apart by the Viet Nam war. Even Mother Nature seamed to be angry and was blowing a freezing gale across the shoreway. I pulled off the frozen highway and into the flooded parking lot, managing to squeeze off a few frames before the water came through the floor boards."

#413. "River Birds," - 16" x 20" Silver Gelatin Print

This full frame image was captured in 1994 and is printed (by the artist) on double Ilford weight paper. The image size is approx. 18.5 inches by 12.75 inches. This dynamic print is bold and yet rich in subtle texture. The print has to be seen in person. This low resolution Net image doesn't do it justice. The birds have a wonderful feeling of motion against the geometric rigidity of the bridge. Click on the image or title for an enlargement.

We ask the artist about this image and he said, "I was in the flats (Cleveland) on the west bank of the Cuyahoga river. There were hundreds of gulls resting in the water, just at the base of the bridge. I had a 300 mm Nikon lens mounted on the tripod and was working on a full frame composition. As I squeezed off a few exposures I remember hoping the birds would take off together. Just at that instant, a loud noise on Whiskey Island startled them and they leaped out of the water, flapping wildly. I got off about a half dozen frames and knew I had something good. The shutter speed (250/sec) was perfect.... just a little blur here and there.... very abstract patterns."
