The work that Iíve been producing over the past ten years is reflective of landscape combining three basic bodies of visual research. Initially, images are based on views taken while I move through the city landscape. Cityscapes intrigue me as cumulative energy of a community. Next are those images I physically collect as relics of nature. These objects are later reassembled in the darkroom to reveal stories of the invigorated relics. Most importantly are those images told to me from dreams or the wanderings of my spirit that are revealed and then documented. Country: USA Birthyear: 1951 Galleries: Stories in the Stones: The Mt.
