"Silver-halide" refers to the chemical makeup of the light-sensitive emulsion commonly used in 20th Century hologram recording systems. These emulsions were coated onto glass plates, which were more rigid than flexible film substrates (a desirable characteristic).
Glass plates were typically recorded and replicated individually "by hand" by the original artist or small production teams. They are considered extremely collectible due to their limited quantities, high quality and considerable image depth / projection.
Note: With a few exceptions, these are photographs of the actual hologram offered for sale. Most of the visible smudges, dust spots and reflections are surface dirt and/or photographic artifacts. Additional photos can be provided upon request.
These artist-owned glass plates have recently become available for the first time!
Lon Moore is one of the world's most collectable holographers. His work, dating back to the 70s, is recognized for its high quality, innovative technique and popular imagery. In addition to being a historically significant holographer, he is also known for his commercial success with his film and photopolymer product lines. These glass plates are extremely rare laboratory proofs of his classic works.
This collection of "large" reflection holograms includes some of the most well-known commercial and artistic works from England's Richmond Holographic Studios dating to the 1980s. Of special note is the Falcon collection, Boy George, Sadu and other limited-edition pieces. A great investment opportunity for collectors.
