“Vital Waters” Exhibit at Sangre de Cristo Arts Center

Vital Waters is an important photography exhibit “to manifest the Earth’s splendor.” Curated by Jeanne Falk Adams, this show expresses the many forms of water on our planet. I am happy to be part of this exciting exhibit, expressing the element of water under the surface. All black and white images, it includes work by Ansel Adams, Ernest Brooks II, Dorothy Kerper Monnolly, and several other Monterey area b/w underwater photographers whom I deeply respect. Opened in June 2021 at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center in Pueblo, Colorado, the show will continue through January 2022. Click on image for more info.

Exhibit at Center for Photographic Art

From February 27 – April 3, 2021, I will be showing my newest work at the Center for Photographic Art in Carmel, California, with fellow artists from Salon Jane. The fourteen Lith gelatin silver prints are a continuation of images for my series In the Liminal which originated in 2017. I made most of this work in my darkroom during the shutdown and it provides an updated perspective of Deep Time and the feeling of being human on Earth. See the CPA website for information on the Feb 27 online opening and in-person visits.

Mariners’ Museum Aquires Underwater Prints

The Mariners’ Museum of Newport News, Virginia, recently acquired a portfolio of work titled the “Marine Portfolio.”  This portfolio was curated by Jeanne Adams and contains a selection of black and white underwater photography, along with several ocean surface images.  The portfolio contains 8 of my underwater prints, along with work from  Scott Campbell, Martha Casanave, Chuck Davis, Wayne Levin, Will Giles, Art Haseltine, Ryuijie and Camille Lenore.  This is a wonderful selection of images depicting the emotional, abstract, and subtle aspects of the ocean, masterfully sequenced.  This work will be shown at the Mariners’ Museum in the fall of 2015…stay tuned for more details.  The museum is known as “America’s National Maritime Museum,” and contains an amazing collection of art and photography related to the sea.  It also houses the USS Monitor Center.  Check it out:
