Black Panther 10-Point Portfolio

Photo Doc Gallery in Paris is publishing The Black Panther 10-Point Portfolio, a collaboration between photographer Stephen Shames and Bobby Seale, Black Panther Chairman and co-founder.The Black Panther 10-Point Portfolio consists twelve of Stephen Shames’ Black Panther photographs written on by Bobby Seale. Seale and Shames sign each print.

This limited edition portfolio of is limited to four sets (and 4 artist proofs) in a stunning portfolio box. The silver prints have an image size of 11 x 14 inches (28 x 35.5 cm) on a 16 by 16 inch (40.6 x 40.6 cm) paper.

Each print in the four sets of silver prints is unique. Bobby Seale came to Stephen Shames’ studio in Brooklyn and wrote by hand the headline of each of the 10-Points on each print. Then he and Shames signed each print. It took them all day to write on all of the 10-Point Portfolios which were printed by master printer Laurent Girard who has been printing for Stephen Shames for three decades. The vellum sheet was printed by digital specialist Ryan Speth, who does all of Shames’ exhibition pigment prints.

Photo Doc Gallery is also producing Small Portfolios. The Small Portfolios will contain digital reproductions of the 12 photos with Bobby Seale’s handwritten text in the Black Panther 10-Point Portfolio. The Small Portfolios will be approximately 8 inches by 8 inches (20 cm x 20 cm) in size.
