I have had an immediate and long standing fascination with the American West. Upon publication of my book, Law of the Range; Portraits of Old-Time Brand Inspectors, a critic once described this fascination as an “obsession”. My interest in the West is with both the land and its inhabitants.
In 2010 I was artist in residence at Mesa Verde National Park where I photographed both park service employees and landscapes. In 2012 I was awarded an artist in residence by the Frank Waters Foundation. This foundation is based in Arroyo Seco, New Mexico northwest of Taos.
I was the first visual artist awarded a residency since the foundation’s inception. I have been a professional photographer for over 35 years.
