Rich Bergeman has been an exhibiting fine art photographer since the late 1980s, with a primary interest in finding and photographing places on the verge of vanishing around the Pacific Northwest. Over the years has transitioned from large-format silver and platinum printing to digital, with forays into manipulated Polaroid, pinhole and infrared along the way.  The print offered in this auction, Morning Laundry, Fossil, Oregon, is from his Pinhole Journeys series—images made with a cigar-box pinhole camera fitted with a 5x7" film holder.  It last was exhibited in the PAO 50th Anniversary Exhibit at the Maude Kerns Art Center in 2017.
