I have had the pleasure of photographing in the Pacific Northwest for more than 35 years. Using a Deardorff 4X5 camera, I have explored the changing character of the Oregon countryside near my home, the exquisite light of the high desert in Central Oregon, the subtle fluctuations of sand and tide on the Oregon Coast, and the amazing seasonal transformations that occur in my garden. In 1996, I began photographing plastic-draped buildings and other structures – found “Christos”-- and continue to be fascinated with their dramatic form and temporary quality.
