Perhaps I should explain my interest a bit farther: after 20+ years in photography mostly as armature and sometime pro in the news and multimedia industries, I find I am not interested in pretty pictures in the since that Ansel Adams made beautiful landscapes or a portrait of a young woman would be pretty. Rather I want to make the images I see in my head when I look at fallen trees, weathered wood, old interesting buildings, Windows, doors, steps and many objects in there found state as much as possible, and documenting the fast decline of the small family farm. My kind of beauty is in the shape, perceived texture, tonality, and emotion.
I am the extension of Vision type where as much as possible the creation of the image ends at the moment of exposure. Perhaps part my training in the news and slide production for multimedia business and part my purism.
