This exhibition is dedicated to my beloved father. May G'd glorify his soul!

The Winter of 2014
This was one of our most robust, challenging and beautiful winters in many years. We lost power for three days when the temperature plummeted to -13F. After things were stabilized at home and it warmed up a bit, I went camping at Turkey Run State Park and photographed using my 4x5" Sinar with 72mm and Nikon D600 with 20mm lens. I hope you enjoy the results. I loved the whole experience and truly felt blessed. 19 degrees isn't bad with the right gear. The forty mile per hour winds were a bit stiff on the way home. Happy viewing!

White River, Flowing through a Metropolis
I was commissioned to produce an exhibition placing White River in context with other important waterways around the world such as the Amazon, Sea of Galilee, Glaciers, Clouds and the Atlantic. This piece is twelve feet wide and was exposed under threat of another torrential storm. We had been drenched by four inches of rain a couple days prior. Initially, I imagined a square format image with my Rollei that would mirror my view of the Amazon. As I stood there in the wind, with cars and trucks whizzing by, I realized I needed to include them too. We are all connected in the web of life. We all live in an ecosystem. I urge us to be good stewards!
Madonna of the Amazon
Above: The Amazon Rain Forest is called the lungs of our planet. I was privileged to travel in a dugout canoe up stream from Iquitos, Peru, and hike through the forest to meet this proud mother and her new babe. An exhibition print of her now hangs in the Carmelite Monastery and is called by the sisters, "Madonna of the Amazon".
