Forest fire

In early 2004, we visited the Anza Borrego desert. On our way out there we passed through the aftermath of the Cedar Fire in the Cleveland National Forest, at the time the largest wildfire in California history. Shocking and eerie, though in the long run you know that nature is going to sort itself out. Nature always sorts itself out.

Lower Klamath Lake, Oregon

One summer we camped on the west side of Lower Klamath Lake, which is in southeast Oregon. We spent most days in our canoe, exploring the inlets and reed forests. There is a National Canoe Trail which was poorly marked, and we managed to get severely stuck in the mud in a forest of tall reeds, which had us wondering if we were going to get out or disappear.

These photos were shot with film and a polarizer, which gives them a bit of an otherworldly look, and a bit of an old postcard look.

Sauvie Island, Oregon

Sauvie Island lies in the Columbia River 20 miles downriver from Portland. Farms, beaches, wildlife areas, and lakes are home to eagle, osprey, otter, beaver, cranes, geese, and cattle. It’s a very popular recreation area in the summer, but in the winter there are few visitors.

These photos were taken about ten years ago. The beached ship is someone’s dream, a concrete boat, that didn’t work out….or maybe it did, dreams can change like that. For the landscape work I was shooting Tri-X Pan and a deep red filter, which is a hard combination to beat for winter photography.

love the vertical elements

I find New York incredibly stimulating visually. There is so much going on everywhere, the neighborhoods are vibrant with their cultural fire. Astonishing, amazing, funny.

discards from an industrial age become art…as decay sets in we can appreciate colors, rhythms, flow
