I had occasion to try to write something that might be helpful for people viewing some of my work at an upcoming show. Since it applies to my work generally, and might be more successful than my usual attempts at the impossible task of “explanation”, I thought I’d post it… My photographs are not descriptive, [...]

Retribute

  Another in a string of what may seem like grim metallic pieces.. in fact I almost titled this one “grimm”. Is the feel of the times is creeping into my activities? Maybe, but it has more to do with what I was working on in the ‘90s. This being another rework and completion of [...]

the description on the youtube page is explanatory, finally decided to put it here too.  

The first offering for the new year is an old image, but one I’ve always liked for it’s silvan mood and intricacy, very “northwesty”. I used to do solitary carefree road trips in a crappy old gas guzzler, with all my photography and camping gear. This was 1982, during a trip that included parts of [...]

This month’s images was made in 2010 on a photography trip with Jeff Corwin in Eastern Washington. It is a spectacular area [...]

  This was the overwhelming favorite in the Facebook and Instagram poll for this months offering. Like one of the prints in the first offering, this image was made at the Ridgefield National Wildlife Reserve, this one in 1990 the other much more recent. I’ve been there many times and have several images of the reserve, [...]

  I’ve made a lot of photographs over the years. When digital means came along as well as the internet, most of my scanning and editing was focused on my regional landscape work, both backward and forward. Finally I have scanned much of the work that doesn’t neatly fit into that, or any, category, and [...]
