In St. John, Antigua where High Street and Soul Alley cross the colors are brilliant and this man doesn’t seem to have a care in the world. This documentary photograph by Alexander Nesbitt is an important part of his culturally insightful collection of images involving text.
Produced in his Newport studio, Nesbitt’s hand-coated aluminum prints are each unique. While the process can be repeated in a variety of sizes each one is slightly different. The base coat is applied with a brush, giving each piece a distinct appearance – and showing clear evidence of the hand of the artist, an unusual feat for a photograph.
Each piece comes with a 3/4″ block mounted to the back for easy hanging.
