Asia has been a great source of inspiration for me, for many years, both visually and philosophically. My rebirth as photoguy (there was a 25 year career as designer between photo lives) was simultaneous with a switch from film to digital. As much as I love darkrooms, it was good digital gear that got me interested in making images again. Images posted here are just the last few years, digital originals. At the request of a gallery in Beijing, some older, film images of landscapes were scanned from film.

I suppose I am a documentarian. I believe beauty is in shape, form and authenticity. I don't like "landscapes," per se, but you may find some beautiful scenes here in the dreaded "postcard" collection (because, after all, I would like to sell images). I'd really prefer to go back and visit that mountain than look at a picture. Pictures of pretty things are generally not art; the art is the original.

I look for authenticity, traces of humanity, and order in space. I document light and the things that reflect it. Much of my work relies heavily on shape, shadows, blocks or traces of color, with a crop 'til it bleeds mentality. If color does not add to an image, it is removed. Otherwise, and maybe too evidently, there is very little post-processing done to any image. It certainly isn't for lack of Photoshop skills, it just bores me now. I show them as I find them, cropping in the camera. Documentarian.

The collection "1/2 enchilada" is a mess of dupes and clutter, and now not even the "whole enchilada." There is no need to go in there except to embarrass me. I have to start over, but not today.
