Click to preview Twelve Months at Cultus Bay photo book

Whidbey Island is naturally beautiful and I captured the life of one corner of it throughout the year. For twelve months I photographed Cultus Bay near the southern tip of the island: by kayak in calm weather, from the shore in wild weather, and while wading during warm weather.

Those who are familiar with my books will recognize the continuation of a theme. I think the best way to know a place is to visit it often, on its good days, its bad days, and those seemingly boring days in between the dramas. A single visit can't do that just like a one-night stand can't replace a long-term relationship.

My books and photos are the products of my curiosity and my search for insights into our world, or at least my world. We live on a fascinating planet and in intriguing times. Whether that is for a reason, or just by chance, such a life is amazingly rich with experiences and connections. The best way to feel, to sense, the world and its complexities is to be active enough to get out into it, and quiet enough to observe it.
