On seeing

I will be explaining my vision as this site is developed.  I spent quite a while not being able to see much detail, but after four eye surgeries, I now see very well indeed.  During the time I couldn’t see well I used my cameras as a way of capturing details to study later, photographing, for instance, a bird I couldn’t quite make out for later identification.  That period of impairment influenced my art profoundly in that I became much more attuned to form and movement and less concerned about detail.  You see the result in the Prairie Winds series particularly.  I have essays planned to include with the various collections on such things as the ethics of photographing nature and the use of Photoshop and other tools to play with images.
