Photography: Through The Mediums

This is a recent piece of mine that I entitled Photography:  Through The Mediums.  It is a sort of reference piece to different styles of photography over the ages.  The image itself is a cyanotype, made by transparency negatives from a digital image.  The golden frame isn’t actually old but a reference to a time […]

In Print

So I haven’t had as many posts lately largely due to the fact that I’ve had a lot of artistic ideas that I’ve been trying to bring to life.  This particular piece of 10 cyanotypes is about a lot different things but the idea came largely from the art of handwriting.  I feel that in […]

Traces of Life

The evidence of human existence is always around us.  Whether it be from current times, or from times long ago the world is full of quiet whispers of our existence.  Some of these signs whisper quietly, unnoticed by many.  Some of them scream loudly “I was here.”  Many of these traces are only temporary, soon […]

The Winter

Winter’s touch is plain to see.  Its long fingers twist through our neighborhoods, and down our streets.  Framing our daily lives with organic beauty, asymmetry.  Reaching into us like the cold air.  You feel the coldness like you see it in the trees. What some people see as death is really nature’s rest, its retreat. […]

Another View

If you look at something from another point of view, it can be something you have never seen before.  Maybe it is the same, nothing changed, but it is quite possible it will be an untold story.  It could be an illusion, a trick of the eye. Or maybe just it is just undiscovered world […]

Split Second

Some people love the flashy, “supposed” to be special moments.  That’s why they do photography.  For me, photography makes art out of the every day, ordinary life.  The beauty of simplicity.  I find inspiration in someone I pass in one moment on the street.  I see beauty in the old, the new, and the cast […]

Perpendicular Existence

Going against the grain,a perpendicular existence.  Moments flee in front of you.  You capture some, letting others just fall through your hands.  Coming, going you never know what you’ll meet.  It’s beautiful and messy, completely unexpected.  The calm gives your clarity and the haste gives you strength.  Who knows what you’ll see along the way. […]

Memorial

Memory is a strange thing.  Holding dear an idea of something that happened. Shaped by your own understanding and feeling, it’s highly deceptive.  Yet, memories drive us with love with hate with curiosity.  Memories are your secrets.  Things only you know, the way you know them.  Maybe it is what it seems or maybe it […]

Curious City

Like a light in the darkness curious creeps through your mind.  A new place, a new moment, never having been before.  There are things that words can not do justice, the places that a curious mind will go.  Wandering, twisting, turning around every experience finding its home in minds willing to take it in for […]

Surroundings

Though the path is laid out, I find it in the details of the surroundings.  In every curve, pattern, and texture a message is evident.  There are no definites, but there are certainly secrets.  Knowing what I experience, but it isn’t the same as what’s in my mind.  It’s a wonderful escape, the beauty of […]
