Dear AliceAbout this object
Robert Fichter is an American photographer known for combining drawing and photoengraving processes into his work. He has titled this technique Print-Photo-Fusion. Fichter studied under Jerry Uelsmann and Henry Holmes Smith, who both had a significant impact on his work. In 1966, Fichter met Nathan Lyons and ended up working for him at George Eastman House as an assistant curator until 1968. Lyons started Visual Studies Workshop in 1969, and Fichter has since maintained an association with VSW. Fichter has also been a professor at a number of schools throughout his career.
This image appears to possibly be photographs taken of images on a television. On the back of the photograph is a letter written to Alice Wells from Robert Fichter.
