Holland Marsh Farm Shed

Holland Marsh Farm Shed” When photographing this shed my inner dialogue stopped; all that could be heard was the distant hum of farm machinery and I  was inspired by the often overlooked.  This work is inspired by Lewis Baltz along with the “New Topographics” photo movement.

Three years ago I had picked up my camera and was happily photographing whatever interested me at the moment in my free time.  One day it would be snowy landscapes, as the weather warmed it would be flowers, then it would be a old car show, followed by a antique steam engine show. read more

‘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

Fuschia and Time.

Fuschia,  June 2017.

With life and work I have have little free time and free time is used to work on my images and photography.  Over the past year I have been working on a series of photographs; call it a project if you want.  This Fuschia photograph is not one of them, and hence the problem.

I of course posted this on my Facebook page, and three Facebook group pages.  At last count this image has garnered over 300 likes and comments in social media!  None of my “project” images comes close to that.  Every year when the mood strikes me I venture out the door and proceed in taking what Doug Lingard, the first photographer who hired me as an assistant as “happy snaps.”  It amuses me for the moment. Every year, when posted on social media, the results are the same; hundreds of likes. read more
