In this series,  Western Landscapes, I focused on two regions, northcentral Oregon and southeastern Washington, both originally volcanic geographic areas offering extremely unique landscape. By narrowing the content in my images, I found I could portray a visual intimacy in the sensuous curves of land and the richness of the summer colors. My relationship with the land deepened as I stretched light and color, blended emulsions and increasingly related my camera strokes to the landscape’s flow.
