Release from the norm. Freedom from the shackles of perception. Harry Houdini became a figure of innovation and perseverance in the face of adversity. In the world of magic, the “Handcuff King” was heralded a hero. As President of the Society of American Magicians, Houdini recruited and grew the group, quickly transforming it into a unified movement, one that still lives and thrives today. One of his greatest motivations behind unifying isolated magicians was to grow a support network to uphold the integrity of the profession while simultaneously weeding out the impostors who sought to threaten it.
In doing so, Houdini gave credence to himself, to the medium of artistic creation that he dedicated his life to crafting, and to his fellow craftsman.
Now, we’re utilizing the tools of our craft to breathe new life into the images on the glass. We’re channeling some modern day digital magic to facilitate a seamless transition from the original negatives into original fine art prints, giving this icon of illusion center stage, once again.
