    Too bad they are $3,000/11x14" print

    Here are two of his portfolios from which prints are for sale at www.photoeye.com.

    Here also is another note about this photographer:

    "Don Hong-Oai's evocative landscapes, produced from multiple negatives are idealized scenes. As such, in the tradition of Chinese landscape painting, they do not represent a specific time or place. Each sepia-toned, gelatin silver print bears a distinctive Chinese inscription by the artist. Don Hong-Oai passed away a little over a year ago, yet a limited number of these exquisite prints are still available."

    His pictures have a nice feel to them. My partner has "Three Friends" in 16x20 and a 20x24 Sandstorm picture.

    They are especially beautiful when one takes into consideration that several were taken at the height of the Vietnam War. It is hard to believe that there would be scenes of such tranquility let alone someone who would find and share them.

    The remind me of the Japanese\Chinese silk scrolls with the chop in the image, a title or something related to the scene, I suppose. I don't care for that artform very much so I don't know much about it.

    As far as the photographs go, I have always had a problem with prints from multiple negatives - a sky from this one, a foreground from that one, etc. Bruce Barnbaum does\did this and it's always given me the creeps. Old time postard photographers used to do this with scenes of the west and then send them back east to dramatize the west and encourage western expansion. Always seems like 'cheap parlor trick' to me and I don't respect the work, even if it produces a pleasant image. Just one guy's opinion.

    He manipulates his images by combining a number of different negatives so he can get the perfect composition.

    Works quite wonderfully
