Photographs are often printed without restraint, as many copies as can be sold. Mark Dahle photographs are different. Each is limited to an edition size of one, meaning that each is a unique work.
Photographs in Mark Dahle Portfolios
Only one Fine Art Edition of each Mark Dahle Portfolio will be created. Each photograph in the Fine Art Edition will be a limited edition of one - a unique work.
The mass market editions of the portfolios will continue to be available to everyone, at 6 x 9 inches. But only one Fine Art Edition will be created by Mark of each portfolio.
Photographs in the Endangered Photo series are limited to an edition size of one, meaning that they are original works of art. Only one signed, officially released version exists of each image. Each is easily recognized as belonging to a set (for example, the set of Endangered Photographs of Telephone Poles) but each is unique and wonderful.
Photographic Artworks created by Mark Dahle are also unique, although they may share many characteristics with other members in the series. For example, in the series 1000 Mops, the image of each of the 1000 mops is the same, but the backgrounds are each unique. Within a set of ten or 99, the backgrounds may have the same patterns but be different colors (like mops 150-159); in other cases even the patterns are wildly different. But regardless of how similar or different the patterns and colors, each is easily recognized as part of the series and each is unique.
