Photographic Story The Iguana Man of Key West was one of the main characters riding around town on his bike with his little dog and iguanas hanging on for dear life. He was quite a character, but was also very friendly. I was glad I was able to capture this image of him before he died in the 1990’s. He represented the human wonder of Key West…an eclectic group of people who somehow manage to get along. It is the essence of democracy. The Art of Hand Painting Black and White Photographs Niki prints her images on fiber-base black and white mat surface paper in the darkroom, then using Q-tips and cotton balls, she applies a thin coat of oil paint over the surface allowing the image to gently be seen through the oil paint. Archival Print Making Niki’s open edition gicleé artwork is printed on Sunset Bright Velvet Rag matte finish paper using eight archival inks. A state-of-the-art Epson Stylus Pro printer creates deep, rich dark values that hold subtle detail in the shadows as well as bright vivid colors that are truly tropical.
