Black and white image of a man (Robert Blackburn) rolling ink onto a stone with a roller/brayer. This image is a good example of a dynamic forshortened image of a printmaker. The viewer is looking up at the figure, roller and hands in foreground. The man's face is directly facing the viewer. The man is wearing glasses. The background consists of a white left corner and black left corner.
