Large format photography, especially large format night photography, is a challenge with great rewards. Here are a few samples of my work from over the years, captured on 4x5 negatives or transparencies (though with a few 2x3 Press Camera negatives included). Many of these images have never before been printed or otherwise exhibited, while some will be familiar to those who have seen my work. New images work will be posted here as they are brought to completion.

Rock Studies

The series of Rock Studies made between 1986 and 1993 use a controlled contrast expansion in the negative to bring out patterns found in metamorphic rock, typically pegmatite viens in dark gneiss or gabbro rock masses. Many of the patterns and shapes were found in such places as road cuts and cliff faces in the San Gabriel Mountains near Los Angeles.

A Hilltop House Portfolio

Hilltop House is the name I gave to a building that once existed beside Route 66 just east of Helendale, California. Once the home of a man that worked as a welder in a nearby equipment repair shop (and who went blind from using an arcwelder without eye protection), the building was designed to be solar cooled. The owner died sometime around 1984, and the building was abaondoned. Over the following eight years, I visited the site several times a year to work the the strange shapes and light within its walls. As time went by, the place was vandalized more and more, and the yard used as a place for people to abaondon old cars and other junk. Finally, the building was destroyed by fire in 1992.
