|My photographs often involve fragile landscapes in which I feel a sense of timelessness. The landscape, however, is only my stimulus or point of departure. I ask the question, "What else is the landscape," and it is the "what else" that I try to photograph.
I also create "Grid-Portraits" of artists and craftsmen. Using several images contact printed together, a space and time scan is made of the subjects in their environments. In addition, references are made to the making of the photograph and to my own interaction with the subjects as I explore the process of perception and visual synthesis. A monograph has been published by Nazraeli Press.
In 1995 I printed 82 vintage Minor White negatives of two Victorian houses for the permanent collection of the Portland Art Museum and for publication in the book "Heritage Lost", published by the Oregon Historical Society and the Portland Art Museum.
