From artist Benjamin Stein:
“This is “Shaving, September 7, 2019,” one of my favorite images from a series I’m working on tentatively titled “home movies.” It’s a 20 minute exposure of me haplessly removing my overlong beard primarily with electric clippers. I’m thrilled that this print is part of a current exhibition at @athenaeumnvfaa Anyone in the DMV area should go check it out as well as the wonderful work of the other artists involved in the exhibition!
10”x10” gelatin silver print on Ilford MGFB Classic paper.” For Sale.
