About the Work:

“My interest in the southern coastal landscape is in the history of the land and how the untold stories and remnants hint of what is left of the past. For most of my career, my photography has been done with large format view cameras and the old techniques of platinum contact printing. My past work has focused on the sublime beauty and mystery of the natural landscape.

I began this work in 1979 on Ossabaw Island, Georgia, using an antique 5 x 7 wooden view camera. Palms in Light (Sapelo Island, Georgia) is made with an 8 x 20 view camera which makes a negative of that size.
