Project info

In 1988, I began working on a book project for the Nasher Art Collections in Dallas. I was to make still life photographs of their collection of tribal art and then to travel to remote areas in Indonesia to photograph how objects similar to those in the collection were still being used. It was six years of adventure that taught me so much about how to see and imagine a hidden text beneath the surface of things.patterns. This has become the foundation for much of my work.
