Kate Front Cover, 1963

Signed (verso in pencil) silver gelatin print, later 1980

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.

Sam Haskins

“While the phrase often gets thrown around these days, Sam Haskins is indeed a visionary. His initial books and images released during the turbulent 1960s and the early 1970s eschewed clichés and took a confident venture into the unknown, influencing generations of imitators.”
