There will be an exhibit of my photographs at 422 Gallery in Phoenix, AZ from April 1-30, 2008. In addition there will be photographs by 422 owner, and my good friend, John Kitts.

Richard M. Coda has been photographing since the early 1970s in New Jersey. He has been using large format cameras exclusively since 1981. He has been included in over 30 exhibitions, been published, and has won several juried awards for his photography. His work is inspired by Edward Weston, Brett Weston, Ansel Adams, Walker Evans, Minor White, and others. Included in this exhibit are several vintage images, as well as newer work based in the Phoenix area. Mr. Coda relocated to Scottsdale in 2005 and is a Phoenix Country Day School parent.
