About this month's print

"My first visit to Mono Lake left me fascinated with its strangeness and intrigued by its beauty. As the years passed I've felt compelled to return many times, drawn by a magical light and expansive space I've rarely seen. Slowly, I began to understand a few of the lake's moods and the tragedy unfolding on its shores."

"In 1979 the idea of a photographic exhibition emerged from conversations with David Gaines and others of the Mono Lake Committee. Photographers Al Weber and Don Worth agreed to help with print selection. Brett Weston, a self-declared 'Mono-maniac', and Ansel Adams offered to lend prints to the effort. Very encouraged, and with the help of many photographers, I built the traveling exhibition 'At Mono Lake'."

The exhibition reached an audience of well over four million people from 1980-1989 and selections are currently on display at the Mono Basin Scenic Area Visitor Center.

This month's print, "Dune at Dusk, Mono Lake", was featured in the exhibition and the exhibition catalog. It is an excellent example of the affection for pastel color that has been central to my work for twenty years.

We're offering an 11x14 inch print, matted to 16x20 and ready to frame for $195.00. This print at this price is offered through June 30. We'll be taking orders until then, and shipping them out by July 15. This photograph won't be available again at this price.

About the program

Each month we offer a print at a special price. This is a great opportunity to own a very affordable fine-art photograph. Orders are taken for a 30-day period, then printed and shipped within two weeks after the close. When it's over, it's over, these prints won't be available again at this price.

End date for this print offer is June 30, 2002.
After this date, the print can be ordered for its regular price of $600.00.
