Black & White Photography

All of my black & white images are silver gelatin prints made with a Crown Graphic 4 x 5” field camera.  The 16 x 20” photographs are at a limited edition of 40.

From any place in nature emanates an essential spirit or energy.   My photographs stem from long back road trips, seeking places where I find myself most centered, most mindful, bigger in a way, discovering this ancient connection many of us have with the earth.  Taking photographs is a ritual of sorts I have adopted  in order to find a voice.

This energy is a positive one I aim to bring back to the darkroom, and hopefully later to the view of others.

The aesthetic of dichotomies seem to bring in the most interesting dialogue. The wilderness sometimes engulfs me; I am tiny and big at the same time, I let my eyes follow the tracks that will lead to an image.  A trail leads to the sky, the sky reflects the earth, contradicts and completes it simultaneously.  The order and the chaos are one.
