About the Book
Another sketch book this time. This is an unedited catalog of all of the color stucco work so far. The original conceit for this project was always in color, before I was seduced by the earlier black & white stages of this project. In this book the B&W images created are different than before. I use the same mash-up process of the color work. I'm still sorting this project out and there's more to do, but this is an opportunity to see a raw body of work still in process.
I'm a second-generation photographer. I live in the shadow of the Matterhorn. Every one on the cul-de-sac knows when it’s 9:35. The booms of Disney’s fireworks are the heartbeat of our summer evenings. You can still see the bombs bursting in the air if you’re young enough to climb the fifty-year-old tree in my front yard. I’ve attended the local schools, but most of my training in photography came from my family’s photography business, which was started the day that I was born. I’ve been an artist exhibiting my work around the world since 1986 and a photography teacher at a local college since 1996. Photography is my life.
