Installation View

Experiences that we are privileged to enjoy in the National Parks, wilderness areas, and rural landscapes are unique to all who engage them. The important areas that have been set aside are truly national and natural treasures to be preserved and protected for future generations.

In addition to capturing some of the beauty and fascinating forms, part of the inspiration for my photography is to convey a sense of the historic and yet timeless quality of pristine terrain. It is when I delve into these places that I'm most inspired to realize the emotional value of the natural landscape. It is, after all, our true home. I think that my subconscious, seasoned with my life history, seeks these places and influences the making of an image. Likewise, the history of the viewer influences their interpretation of that image. The many possible combinations of interaction are, I think, key to the vitality of art forms and the desire to create them.

About the Prints

There are many ways to make interesting and beautifully printed photographic images.   That diversity is part of what makes photography a member of the fine art community.
These photographs were made using film exposed in a 4x5 field camera.  The goals I have for producing large format prints are the following: 

        Accurately and perceptually reproduce color;
        Make archival prints that will hold the color for a long time without fading;
        Render the prints with a minimum of reflection from the print surface.
Because of the wonderful advances in digital and printer technology, I now have the ability to reliably achieve those goals.  As part of the creative process, I scan the 4x5 film; then edit each image in Photoshop and print on high grade, heavy-weight photo cotton rag paper using UltraChrome inks.  This process enables me to make limited edition prints with a color and tonal range that represents my intent accurately.   In some cases, when I feel the form is more important than color, the image is rendered in sepia tone.  The presentation of these images involves a desire to convey an impression of the subject at least as much as the literal representation.  The elements of composition, texture, pattern and rhythm form the image structure and are enhanced when displayed with adequate lighting.  To preserve the archival rating of approximately one hundred years, the prints should be framed with archival methods and be displayed out of direct sunlight.
