Description

"Brooklyn Bridge showing painters on suspenders" photographed by Eugene De Salignac, 1914.

Born in Boston in 1861 into an eccentric family of exiled French nobility, de Salignac had no formal training in photography. In 1903, at the age of 42, his brother-in-law found him a job as an assistant to the photographer for the Department of Bridges, Joseph Palmer. After 3 years of apprenticeship, Palmer suddenly died, and in October 1906, de Salignac assumed his duties.

As the sole photographer for the department from 1906 to 1934 (in 1916 it changed its name to the Department of Plant & Structures), he documented the creation of the city's modern infrastructure—including bridges, major municipal buildings, roads and subways. Most notably, he documented the construction of the Manhattan Bridge and the Queensboro Bridge, and the Manhattan Municipal Building but his most famous image is that of painters posing nonchalantly on the cables of the Brooklyn Bridge. Using a large-format camera and 8x10 inch glass-plate negatives, he shot over 20,000 images in his career. Most of these negatives and over 15,000 vintage prints are held by the New York City Municipal Archives. Into his 70s de Salignac was still climbing bridges and actively working, but he was forced to retire in 1934 despite a petition to Mayor La Guardia. [courtesy of Wikipedia].

Historical Pix's artwork collection is curated to offer prints that personally resonate with you. These prints bridge the past to the present through the beautiful art of places, people and ideas.

All art work is printed on premium archival photo paper using OEM archival pigment inks which means they will never fade or turn yellow. Please note, no mat or frame is included. On most prints, standard photo sizes are used (8x10, 11x14, 16x20) making it easy to purchase mats/frames at your local home goods store. These handsome prints will look stunning in your home or office any way you choose to display them. For unique framing ideas, please visit my Pinterest Store at www.pinterest.com/spectrachro1183.

Hours are spent cleaning each picture using professional software. This includes removing dust, scratches and optimizing the exposure and color for printing while enhancing the original details. Please note that different sizes have different aspect ratios which means your photo may be cropped a little differently depending on the size.

All color photographs are available as black and white photographs, just let me know when you order (the same prices apply.) Also, if you are looking for a specific photo, or specific customization, please let me know and I may be able to provide it for you.

All prints come with a 1/4" border for matting purposes. If you want a full bleed (your photo to go from end to end) please convo me after ordering).

Ordering is easy, just pick your print, choose the size (if there is more than one) and put it in your cart. I ship quickly and safely - large prints will arrive in a rigid mail tube.
