This is a glossy black-and-white silver gelatin photograph printed in a New York City commercial darkroom around 1984. Portrait of the beloved astronomer Carl Sagan. The copy print was ordered for press use, and a copy negative was used. I believe this is a reverse image of the color promotional photo used for the 1980 television series "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage", narrated and co-written by Sagan.

Paper size: 14 x 11 inches. Actual image size: 8.5 x 8.5 inches.

The photo shows noticeable average wear. Yellow discoloration near edges.

Digital prints of this iconic image are probably readily available today, but I like the warmth of the real vintage darkroom process. Even though this was a copy, it was still printed by a real person.

This would be impressive matted and framed. Unique gift for the many fans of this great science popularizer whose vision continues to inspire.
