Testimony
2005
EDITION INFO
Testimony is a suite of five photogravure prints taken from film stills of Kara Walker's 2004 video work Testimony: Narrative of a Negress, Burdened by Good Fortune. For her Publishing Residency at the Lower East Side Printshop, Walker chose the photogravure process to enhance the deep, velvety texture of the shadow silhouettes. Lothar Osterburg produced the plates and James Miller and Christian Kinsler printed them, on Hahnemuhle Copperplate paper in an edition of forty.
