I have never considered myself a documentary photographer however I do work in a straightforward manner that harkens to photo documentary style. I use the strategy of a documentary photographer to make images that convey what space feels like, not simply how it looks. I believe that my images contain both poetry and information. I work on several projects at once. This tends to make my images stronger and more complex, and for me it also makes my different bodies of work open-ended with each project informing the others.
Throughout my 40 plus years of professional involvement in photography I have demonstrated strong concerns in my images for the history and land use in the West. I can now identify at least three, possibly four projects that I am close to completing. These bodies of work reveal my introduction, analysis, and conclusions with regard to these concerns. They function as my observations about life in general and my love of photography specifically.
