Through my images, I give the viewer a chance to feel the glow of twilight as it appears over an abandoned barn or experience the silence of a century old prairie grain elevator waiting for the next harvest. Every image tells a story that needs to be told. The very history of our nation is collectively dissolving before our eyes. If we choose not to honor and remember our past, we will suffer more than the loss of a building or a tractor. We will lose that collective history of who we were and who we are, and our future generations will be poorer because of it.
I capture my portraits across the United States, but my primary focus is the Pacific Northwest where I live. I’m fortunate to be able to find many scenes close to home that allow me to revisit them during seasonal changes which provides an entirely different mood and feeling to emerge in the images.
My work is held in private and corporate collections throughout the United States and I have shown in numerous galleries in the Pacific Northwest in addition to being a guest lecturer around the country focusing on the abandonment of our past.
Thank you for your interest in my vision and mission to preserve our history.
