Bill Daniel Opens Up His Archive

TRI-X-NOISE is Bill Daniel’s new website featuring classic, quality handmade photographs at super-accessible prices ($25 and up).

“Tri-X-Noise is a way I can sell prints directly to you. The deal is to try to make these as accessible as possible— $35 for an 8×10, $45 for an 11×14, $65 for a 16×20— about the prices you’d pay for digital prints. But these are real, analog, optically-printed hand-made photographs― b/w double weight fiber paper, archivally processed. (Gelatin Silver Prints) If I make a photograph it’s made to last as long as humanly possible. I want you to be able to give your grandkids a photo of a Minor Threat show that they can give to their kids. Maybe that’s a silly idea, but that’s part of what motivates me.”
