Silver gelatin print, c1980


With a handful of exceptions, Haskins did all his own printing for his creative work. He also passed away (2009) with only 2.5% of his archive signed. The Haskins archive is characterised by a very broad creative range, including many iconic works. Still, there is only a very small number of silver gelatin prints for each image (typically 1-3 copies, sometimes a few more), so signed works are especially rare. Sam Haskins built his reputation on his legendary books, which meant he originally printed to make maquettes (4 for each 60’s title) for presentation to publishers, not to produce stock for the print market. In other words, Sam Haskins silver gelatine are organically hyper-limited, there are no ‘editions’ of his vintage black and white work.
