Using just a camera and film, what kind of image can be made?

The photographic image should be an accurate record of what the camera and film captured. And, an image made with film has a certain feel to it. The image should be an experience - it should shift you. Maybe make you smile. Remember when you were a child how a simple little thing could galvanize your entire being - time stood still and you felt totally connected to the world - there was a feeling of total contentment?

A transparency film image processed through standard chemistry, with the absolute minimum disturbance of the captured image during the processing and finishing stages, is the paradigm for an unmanipulated image. So, just a camera and some film.

The body of work consists of five ongoing series: Agriculture, Color Fields, Landscapes, Structures, and Trees.

Suggestive of the American modernism Precisionism movement, the work is characterized by the reduction of compositions to simple shapes and underlying geometrical structures, with clear outlines, minimal detail, unexpected viewpoints and framing, and an emphasis on the abstract form of the subject.
