Geography

Read The Most Sublime Landscape Experiences Of My Life here.

Process

20% straight. 80% composites.

Poetry, by any means necessary.

Experiment to find out what’s possible.

Concepts

A profound shift in consciousness arises when we relate to the world (all of it) as parts of a living thing into whose fibers we are deeply woven before birth and after death. Just as every individual has a unique spirit, every location has its own unique spirit (Genius loci is the latin translation of what the Greeks called this.), which fits into the larger world spirit (Anima mundi is the latin translation of what the Greeks called this.) We are not apart from nature, we are a part of Nature.

This is a selection of my top 12 images of all time. This selection doesn’t reflect sales, publication, or activities on the web. It simply reflects my opinion. Click on the titles to find out more about each image.

Geography

These images are drawn from three locations – Bolivia’s Uyuni salt flats, Namibia’s Sossusvlei dune files, and Iceland’s Skogafoss waterfall.

Process

These images were all drawn from three separate hour-long sessions each yielding complete individual portfolios. I used to think I’d be lucky if I got one really good image from a shoot, but after a few experiences where more than one really good image was made from a single subject, I cast aside my limited thinking. Now I ask, “How far can I take this?”

Concepts

All of these images come out of a way of relating to the world (all of it) as parts of a living thing into whose fibers we are deeply woven. In addition to changing organic forms, they all have a strong suggestion of breath.

Magnificent Moment

They’re all nominees for my list of most sublime landscape experiences. While standing silently focused on Iceland’s Skogafoss waterfall was the fulfillment of many years of looking for my own original response to a classic subject, and walking in the clouds reflected on the surface of Bolivia’s Uyuni salt flats was the realization of a long-standing dream, few landscape experiences compare to the hour spent flying over Sossusvlei Namibia’s 1,500 foot high coral dunes after a sustained sandstorm – the experience was so penetrating it took me quite some time to clearly see the new directions and new levels it offered.It’s challenging to choose so few images from so many – but it’s insightful.

Geography

Antarctica, California, Iceland, Utah

Process

The focus of my energies this year was to bring three bodies of work to completion, not done as in over, but done as in enough to achieve real depth and to reveal the seeds that leads to new work.

Concepts

Two bodies of work merged; Inhalation and Exhalation found a larger shared envelope in Respiration. In Respiration, symmetry elicits a rich upwelling of associations both the archetypal and the individual highlighting the role of the viewer’s personal experience in the process of interpretation. In Refraction, the mystery light patterns partially reveal fields of energy and information encoded holographic universe relativistically perceived. Quantum editions were released (viewer’s choose which and how many variants are manifested in print form) allowing the viewer’s perception to determine the final shape a print edition takes.

Magnificent Moment

I spent a great deal of time entranced by changing light on and in flowing water patterns. On California’s Guadalupe Beach, on a long sunny afternoon, moving back and forth, in and out of constantly shifting water courses I found myself lost in flow in a timeless experience. I drank nothing but felt that a deep thirst had been quenched.

Geography

Antarctica, California, Iceland, South America, Utah.

Process

I practiced my typical 80% composite and 20% straight. Can you tell which is which? I hope it’s not obvious and that during this guessing game you begin to look more closely at looking.

Concepts

Light reveals and interacts with surfaces, which both reveal and conceal, sometimes doing both simultaneously. What the viewer sees depends as much on the context (physical location and moment in time) as his or her mental state (education, emotion, intent, awareness).

Magnificent Moment

The time I spent exploring the Great Salt Lake in Utah, several years before these images were completed, was a particularly intense time emotionally for me, some of I hope is reflected in these images and some of which I hope remains personal. The magnificent moment was inside.
