‘Now you must not take anything for granted when you are looking at a picture. Never do that. Every single little tiny space on that page works and counts.”

William Eggleston

I am an artist and admittedly I see the world through different eyes then most people; I see the beauty in things that may be considered boring, decrepit, overlooked, rusting, deteriorating, or mundane.  I enjoy photographing this subject matter which could be described as banal, boring and everyday. What seems at first to be a simplistic image is in fact quite complex and nothing in the frame can be taken for granted.   These images are meant to be hung on a wall, to be viewed, to be studied and to be questioned to reveal their inner beauty.  These images are just not “pretty pictures.” read more

Industrial Scaffolding now available at Saatchi Art

Industrial scaffolding next to a industrial warehouse

A image taken early Sunday morning of industrial scaffolding erected to repair a industrial plant’s roof. Inspired by clean, documental, industrial, and architectural photographs of the past along with the relatively “new landscape” style of photography. I often find silence, beauty and silence while I record these pieces of man made functional art.

A interesting article to read and something that hits close to home:  http://bit.ly/2rUfpba.

Somewhat like the author I too am a failed artist or photographer. In my twenties, thirties and forties I used to constantly think, eat, read, write and dream photography along with hustling and photographing as a profession. But then came the moment I put down my cameras, turned off the computer and walked away. As time moved on I sold most of my camera equipment including my trusty large format Sinar, film holders, lenses, stands, studio lighting flashes and darkroom including a large D2V enlarger. Thru multiple possession purges I gave away most of photo book and monograph collection. I even got a retail sales job in a big box store which to my amazement enjoyed and still do to this day. read more

“Silos II” now available at Saatchi Art

Silos II.” When photographing these images of Silos in a “New Landscape” style of photography my inner dialogue stops and all that can be heard is the distant hum of idle machinery along with the sound of one hand clapping, very therapeutic.  I’m also pleased to announce this image is now available at Saatchi Art as a signed and limited numbered edition print.

Never mind the fact that writing about the images seems to be the least liked activity, with limited time; shooting new images, editing them, posting them on social media and posting them on various gallery sites for sale this blog seems to get the short end of the stick. That doesn’t mean I don’t have plans for this site. read more
