Collodion Wet-plate collodion photogram on stone, stand made of welded steel and rock - 3.5"x5" up to 8"x8" not including stand
The “Anthropocene” fossils are imaginary records of flora and fauna that might be found in a future geologic era. They are evidence of what was and hints of how it might have been extinguished. Just as the real fossils found by humans fill in the story of what lived and how it died in earlier geologic era, these created fossils are evidence what what might be becoming extinct as a result of human activity.
Wet-Plate Collodion, Silver-Gelatin Photograms, Salted Paper Prints, Digital Pigment Prints, 3D printed PLA Resin sculptures, Artist Books, Trade Edition Book, salted paper prints 10"x8", digital prints 15"x22" and 40x52", sculptures up to 5x8"
MANUAL is a collection of portraits of people from diverse backgrounds, occupations, ages, and cultures from around the globe. In each hand portrait is a study of the person’s dominant hand, revealing evidence of how they have lived, who they are, and what they may become. It is a collaboration between photographer and subject to expose their hands and their personalities. Without the distraction of faces, these images become honest and deeply perceptive portraits, reflecting the lifestyle, habits, and sensitivity of each subject.

Collodion Wet-Plate glass negatives scanned and enlarged, manipulated in Photoshop and digitally printed up to 96" wide.
Borderlands is an exploration of panoramic landscapes derived from small areas cropped from the edges of contemporary collodion wet-plate images. The hand-made nature of the wet-plate process creates artifacts which appear to be gigantic landscapes but in reality are just inches across.

3D printed artist books/sculptures of photography and text. PLA resin, digital prints on paper, USB drives, fabric, wood, found objects, pens, pencils, cameras - various sizes 2"x3" up to 8"x5" - some are edition 1 of 1 others are in editions of 10
The Gutenberg series of 3D printed books deals with the evolution of books and how knowledge may be distributed in the future. The content of these 3D printed books cannot be accessed – it is sealed inside the PLA resin binding. You must destroy the book to read the book. These books require the viewer/reader to trust the artist - is the content really in there or not? You can see something is inside but you don't know if it is really as the artist claims. Much of the artwork which is bought and sold requires trust in the artist and the dealer, and these books expand upon that leap of faith.

What we’ve been doing…. Lisa and I presented our work for the Peters Valley Artist Talk Series on May 5th, 2021. I love to talk about my art but talking about myself is excruciating. It was a wonderful opportunity to explain how my various projects relate to each other and fit into the context of …

The Big Picture
I love seeing art escape the galleries to infiltrate and enhance everyday life.

Thanks to Mark Sink, lots of volunteers, and the bi-annual Month of Photography that he …

Hive Structure or Ant Farm or Habitrail?
The spring open house at the huge Mana Contemporary in Jersey City NJ was fascinating as always. I have gone to Mana open houses before and I always enjoy it. But it is overwhelming. Six floors plus a basement of artists studios and gallery spaces. There are art storage spaces for organizations such as ICP …
Flashback: Remembering the Sixties
It is a cliché but true… “If you can remember the Sixties you weren’t there.” I can’t remember much of that era but I was there. When I was in high school and before I was old enough to drive (16 was the legal driving age in Ohio back then) Johnathan Crawford, one of my …
