Imogen Cunningham Estate PrintsEstate prints are printed directly from Imogen's original negatives, by the Cunningham Trust, and stamped with Imogen's facsimile signature and chop, authenticating that the print has been made and approved by the Imogen Cunningham Trust. These prints are archivally made by hand in the darkroom, and mounted and overmatted on 100% cotton rag museum board.
Imogen's script logo and the mark of the Chinese chop are blind stamped into the mounts of all Estate Prints.
The Chinese chop was developed by Imogen and designed by Shen Yao, a friend of Imogen's and a Professor of Linguistics at the University of Hawaii. The chop is composed of three Chinese characters, Im-o-gen, spelling out "Imogen" phonetically and also translating literally into the phrase "Ideas without end." A fourth character, the customary seal, was added
Vintage and Original Prints with Certificate of Authenticity.
Vintage prints are photographs that Imogen printed herself, in her darkroom. These prints came directly from Imogen Cunningham, and are now held by the Imogen Cunningham Trust and paired with a Certificate of Authenticity.
