Robert ParkeHarrison mixed media panel:Stigma, 2005
As with all of the earlier work of Robert ParkeHarrison, Stigma was made with traditional analog processes unlike
new digital processes now being used by the Parkeharrisons, as well as by most photographers today. The elements in
this image were constructed by ParkeHarrison personally and Stigma, we believe, was part of the last series of work
constructed by hand. Rarely do we see these pre-digital panels
on the market. Considering that ParkekHarrison has
abandoned these old time-honored processes for the newer digital methods of creating and printing images, and that
there is a particular style identifiable and congruent nature to the older work, it is no wonder why those who purchased
this work continue to hold on to it and likely will for decades to come. This panel (#2/3) was part ofthe series when
Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison decided to make their editions smaller than 5, thus the edition of 3.
The George Eastman House originated the first worldwide ParkeHarrison exhibition that traveled for 5 years. Not
much later the work of Robert ParkeHarrison was then credited to both Robert and his wife Shana who worked
as a team then and now.
