Life Form

The Life Form Series has grown from my lifelong fascination with organic form and design. Not only have I found solace in the natural world for all of my adult life, but my respect for all living things has profoundly effected how I’ve lived my life.

Exquisite Earth

This exhibition is the first look at work drawn exclusively from my work during the period 2005 to 2010. The grouping is called Exquisite Earth and is meant to convey my deep appreciation for this extraordinary planet we call home.

With a New Eye: The Digital National Parks Project

"With a New Eye" is a digital photographic survey of selected American National Parks from 1994 through 2006. The project employs a modified Dicomed digital insert, a Sinar-X 4x5 camera, and the Macintosh PowerBook540c through G4 for completely portable digital photography of very high quality. The camera is capable of color, black and white, and infrared photographs of extremely high resolution and dynamic range (6000x8000 pixels, 140MB files with more than 11 stops of exposure latitude).
