possibly a bargain,

but only for those who would recognize it as such. The listing below is for a framed photograph I've donated to the auction at my kids' school. I'm worried that it's the kind of high-dollar unique item that will be destined for fund-raising failure when offered to the wrong crowd. Proxy bidding is available through Thursday. Hell, I'd even drop a form off for you if you're interested in placing a bid.

Item #L056: Untitled, behind the scenes on Where the Wild Things Are, Bushranger's Bay, Victoria, Australia, 2006

image: archival digital chromogenic print, 20" x 30" image, framed to 30" x 40" in white oak. Signed on verso by Shawn and Max Records

value: $1000

item description: framed photograph made behind the scenes of the departure scene in Spike Jonze's motion picture adaptation of Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are.

bio: Shawn's photographs are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago and the Portland Art Museum and have been shown at MoCP, PAM, the Cooley Gallery, and Blue Sky Gallery among many others.
