This image of psychedelic luminaries Ann & Sasha Shulgin is the third print from Dean Chamberlain’s Psychedelic Pioneers Series. This portrait was made in 2000 at Ann & Sasha’s home.
Chamberlain’s images are created entirely in the camera, with no computer manipulation. His light painting technique involves working with his camera and subject in completely dark spaces. Using extremely long exposures in sessions that often extend to four or five hours, he moves through the composition space with a flashlight and colored gels illuminating each individual element. More than photographing a moment, Chamberlain paints with light through time and space.
This edition of prints was created to help fund MAPS-sponsored MDMA research. 50% of the profits from the sale of these prints will go towards this research.
There are only 50 of these beautiful archival pigment prints. The image is 11″x14″ and is printed on fine-art matte paper.
A limited number of prints are still available for sale at the MAPS webstore.
