While attending the PhotoAlliance Photo Review in 2012 I met Nicholas. We connected through our mutual appreciation of each others work and the analog format. Nicholas has recently published a wonderful book entitled, One No One and One Hundred Thousand. The images, taken around the Salton Sea, create a powerful story of mystery and overbearing. Nicholas was also recently asked to write a blog for the German online magazine, Der Greif. In this article he mentions our PhotoAlliance connection and eventual friendship. He writes about my Cyanotype series, Blues. His words were very kind about my work and I am grateful for his friendship.
