I am thrilled to announce my upcoming two-person show at Rick Wester Fine Art in New York City.
I hope to see you at the opening reception on Thursday, November 1!
I am very excited to announce the publication of my book Was im Licht erscheint by Datz Press.
This book brings together a collection of black and white photographs spanning from 1978 to 2016. It is a linen bound hardcover book which includes one original archival pigment print, in an edition of 100.
For purchase information, please contact me.
I am thrilled to have once again been able to attend the FotoFest portfolio reviews in Houston. It's an amazing opportunity to present my work to dozens of industry professionals as well as being able to meet other inspiring photographers from around the world.
The print Untitled #1 from my new series Gravity was selected for inclusion in this year's benefit auction, and was even used on the back cover of the catalog! I am so happy to have seen it off to it's new home in a fantastic collection, and for way over the listed price!
Cyanotype Workshop at The Image Flow
In October we had another fun workshop at The Image Flow, spending three days delving into printing and toning cyanotype prints. Look for another cyanotype workshop to be offered in 2018!
SF Camerawork Auction
I'm thrilled that after lively bidding my image "Washers" has found a wonderful new home, and for such a great cause as supporting SF Camerawork which does so much to promote and encourage fine art photograhy. We are fortunate to have such an amazing institution within our local community.

After the success of our first cyanotype workshop at The Image Flow, we have another workshop scheduled for October 13- 15.
This two and a half day workshop covers making digital negatives as well as printing and toning cyanotypes. The class is limited to 8 students and registration is now open.
For the second time I have attended Photolucida in Portland, OR. It was wonderful to get so much great feedback from both reviewers and fellow photographers. The festival is run really well and The Benson Hotel is a perfect venue. Thank you to all the Photolucida staff and the many volunteers who help to make it such a wonderful experience. One of my favorite thing about Photolucida is meeting old friends and making new ones. Below some photos.
In March Niniane Kelley and myself were conducting a workshop on Cyanotype printing and toning. The venue was The Image Flow located in Mill Valley, CA. We had a fabulous group of six students ranging between the ages of 25 and 89. During two and a half days we covered the making of digital negatives, coating the paper, exposing and toning in a wide variety of toners and bleaches. A big thank you to all the students for their enthusiastic participation and to the Image Flow for hosting. This is about as good of an environment as it gets!
During the recent CODEX Art Book Fair in Point Richmond, CA, Corden|Potts Gallery was showing my limited edition Artist book "Le Scarpe" and the photogravure portfolio "Feld und Flur".
The book "Le Scarpe" measures 40" x 16" when open and it features twelve images reproduced from the original toned cyanotype prints. It's beautifully bound in red silk fabric with a leather backing by John Demerritt of Emeryville.
If you missed CODEX you can see both at Corden|Potts Gallery in San Francisco.
I am pleased to announce that my print "Mezlan" from the series Le Scarpe, which I donated to the FotoFest 2016 Benefit Auction, was purchased by a private collector after heavy bidding, with the final auction price well exceeding the estimate.
The auction sales go directly to support FotoFest art and education programs in Houston and abroad, as well as the Literacy Through Photography year-round education program, operating in over 60 Houston area classrooms this year.
A selection from my series "Le Scarpe" will be featured at Corden|Potts Gallery during San Francisco Art Market 2016, in Booth 123.
April 27 through May 1
Fort Mason Festival Pavilion
I am pleased to announce that my print "Gordon Rush" from the Le Scarpe series will be part of the FotoFest 2016 Biennial International Fine Print Auction.
The auction will be held Monday, March 21 at the Doubletree Hotel in Downtown Houston, TX.
A few weeks ago I got contacted by Daniel Regan from London, UK. He saw photos of my series "Carry" on lenscratch and wanted to feature my work on the web site FRAGMENTARY. His site is devoted to the exploration of mental health within photography. Take a look at some amazing photography.
I have been thinking about creating images with empty shoe boxes which I started collecting about 20 years ago. I have tried many times but was never quite convinced. Last fall I made another effort and I am proud to present 12 large, toned cyanotypes at Corden|Potts Gallery in San Francisco. The show "Le Scarpe" - Italian for "The Shoes" opens on Thursday, September 3 and will run through October 17, 2015.
Artist receptions on Thursday, September 3 and Thursday, October 1, 2015, 5:30 - 7:30 pm
Aline Smithson, one of my reviewers at photolucida, was intrigued by my ongoing series, "Carry." This past Monday, August 8th, Aline featured my work on lenscratch. This is yet another example of how important it is to attend photo reviews. The connections one makes not only exposes ones work to the art world, it opens up art friendships. Thank you Aline. This is wonderful exposure for my work.
I am happy to be included in a wonderful group show in my hometown Lucerne, Switzerland. Henri Spaeti, owner and curator of the gallery TUTTIARTluzern, selected five images from my ongoing series "Carry". The local newspaper Luzerner Zeitung published the review and they chose one of my images - see below! The show will run through August 22, 2015.
PORTLAND, OR, 4/23 - 4/26
I spent 5 days in Portland showing my work along with 160 other photographers. It was wonderful to meet old friends and make new ones. I was excited and inspired by seeing so much good work.
