I attended FotoFest in Houston in March. It was inspiring and overwhelming, and I continue to absorb my 19 interviews. I presented my new series, Phantasm, and the large book version of Strangeness of Seeing.

The book, Zone of Transformation: Nature in the High Desert, was part of the 8th Annual Photobook Show at the Griffin Museum of Photography in conjunction with Davis-Orton Gallery. The book was published under the direction of Datz Press in Seoul as a limited edition of 300 offset, stitched, hard-cover books.

The January/February show at Vessel Gallery, Persistence of Light, explored the properties of light with artists Cheryl Calleri and Ron Weil. I presented five cloud images as dye-sublimation prints on aluminum panels. I’ve been working with clouds for a long time but have never shown them or really pulled together a body of work (other than the Sky Grids made in Joshua Tree in 2015). Thanks to Lonnie Lee of Vessel for pushing me that direction!

In December I returned to the studio from an artist residency at Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest, in Kentucky. The six-week residency there gave me quiet time to expand my abstract nature imagery in a new ecosystem. Printing of proof copies wrapped up at the end of the year and the final edit took another week or two, resulting in 28 new images. The specific goal of the organization, which coincides with my own work, is to inspire the exploration of our deep connections with nature. I was honored by the generous amount of space and time given to me to make Phantasm: Autumn in the Kentucky Woods.

I am curating the exhibit wall at Photolab in Berkeley with Andrea McLaughlin, owner of the lab. Our current show features Nicolo Sertorio and Hannah Rothstein. “Warning Signs” examines environmental degradation and will be shown until June. photolaboratory.com.

PHOTO Fine Art Photography, the gallery I directed, closed the Oakland location at the end of 2015, after five great years. My partners Henry Bowles and Charles Anselmo are exploring a new online venture for PHOTO. Stay tuned.
