Slim Aaron's ability to capture instantly iconic moments, un-staged and yet remarkably timeless, are on full display in "Venice Gondolier." Riding in the gondola, you admire the beautiful Roman Catholic Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute in the background while swaying with the lapping water. The salt in the air, the squawk of nearby birds, the Italian conversations of the nearby gondola riders-- The tanned gondolier, hat fashionably tilted with the perfect model-esque look into the distance, could be considered the perfect pose if it weren't for that fact that he's in-fact actually steering the gondola from which Slim grabs the shot.

Chromagenic or Continuous Prints (C-Prints)
C-type prints are notable for their continuous tone and vibrant colours. The first widely used colour print process, modern c-type prints are printed from high resolution digital files produced from drum-scanned negatives or transparencies. C-type prints use dye-based photographic papers and should not be confused with inkjet, or giclée prints. The C-Print differs from an inkjet print because it is a chemical, rather than a digital, process and as the image is enlarged, it maintains a smoothness and richness in color that is often lost when compared to a digital enlargement. Additionally, the difference between an inkjet print and a C-print really shines when you put it behind plexiglass or have the image framed.
