March 2006

Winterail Railroad Photography Exhibition, Stockton, Ca.
Multi-media presentation titled "While You Lay Sleeping", featuring night images of railroads and landscapes set to an original freestyle guitar composition, written and performed by myself. The presentation contained both still images and short movie sequences made from sequential time-lapse night images (some made in very dark, moonless conditions), and was very well received by a theater full of people. I have been told it set the bar higher for Winterail shows in the future.
