Silver gelatin print, 2002

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.

To the best of our knowledge, there is only one other unsigned silver gelatin print of this artwork in existence.

Sam Haskins

“Haskins is fully aware of the of the importance of face and expression upon the effect of a nude and shows the faces of his models. Whether smiling quietly, laughing in exuberant joie de vivre or seriously looking into space, they appear completely unconscious of their nudity. It seems to me it is precisely this frankness - those large clear eyes candidly looking at me - that gives Haskins nudes and semi-nudes their bewitching quality, that indescribable mixture of sheer physical beauty a sensuality and honesty, which, no matter how provocative their apparel or pose makes these girls appear as natural and as much part of the universe, as a tree or the sea or the sky.”
Andreas Feininger - American Society of Magazine Photographers - 1963
