shadows of the past

My early influences were, for the most part American fine art photographers working in the 1970-90's. Many, but not all, used large or medium format cameras and came from the "beauty found from seemingly nothing" school. I have decided to open my own heart back up to these image maker's style, rather than try to move away from them as I have been since digital came along. This year (for me) is the year of retrospection. Always growing is the right path, but growth comes from a beginning and I have been ignoring my beginning's for too long. The images I still respond to are the ones I have always responded to. No gimmicks, no tricks, no short term fads, just honest (as photography allows) image making of real things to the highest degree possible.

You have to be true to yourself.
