The small version of my book, Hydrospheric Variations, is featured in the Ft. Wayne Museum of Art, Indiana, as part of the exhibit, The National: Best Contemporary Photography 2022. The exhibit will be on view September 17, 2022–January 8, 2023.

Planning continues for several exhibits for 2023: I am curating a landscape photography show for the spring at Chung24 gallery in Noe Valley, San Francisco, working with Diane Chung; preparing for the Superfine Art Fair at Fort Mason; and just starting to plan for next fall’s exhibit at Richmond Art Center.

I am still working on an assemblage project in boxes. A few months ago, my studio neighbor Paul Hofmann gave me some wood boxes. Later, while walking in north Berkeley, I found a biography of Joseph Cornell in a Little Free Library. These things came to me unasked for and called me to compose photographs and objects in the boxes. Five are finished; I’m working on two more and we’ll see what happens.

Recently finished two One-Sheet Books, Here and Mirror. These are concise groups of images meant to be poetic reflections on the world and our place in it, avoiding any demands for assigned identities, when, or where the photos were taken. 

The 2021 series, Memento Mori, consists of 11 images printed on canvas then mounted to wooden panels with copper leaf edges. I’ve wanted to do more hands-on work for some time, starting with Memento Mori and continuing on with the assemblage boxes.

The latest print-on-demand book, FLOW, is available now at MagCloud.com. It is a compilation of several small projects and also includes favorite non-series images from the last few years.
