About Juniper Baryta Rag: Juniper Baryta Rag 305 by Moab Paper is a 100% cotton, true baryta (barium sulfate) fiber paper that offers the density of a traditional darkroom FB-type paper to hold detail in the deep blacks of the shadow regions, while producing natural white highlights that’s enhanced with a slight fiber glossy surface texture.
This double-weight coated inkjet fine art paper embraces the unique charm of silver halide by using state-of-the-art coating technology to bring a new method to an old tradition. It even smells like old-fashioned darkroom paper and reminds me of the chemical days!

About Alone I Stand
A book contract brought me back to Yosemite Valley for several successive winters. Exploring the valley floor following a massive snowstorm, I found this indomitable old tree standing tall against the weather in Leidig Meadow. Mindful of the great artistic and photographic heritage of art depicted Yosemite, as I created this image I kept the heroic paintings of Albert Beirstadt in mind—as Beirstadt’s romantic view of Westward expansion echoed the theme of the ancient but indomitable tree standing tall against the weather.
Photographing this image of an almost perfectly symmetrical Camellia Japonica was a controlled exercise in using a bracketed sequence of photos to build up a low-key image, starting from the darkest image. Technical concerns aside, as an artist my goal was to create a feeling of softness that enhanced and complemented the gradual shade into darkness, bringing out the sensuality of this gorgeous flower.
About Road Less Traveled
In his famous poem, Robert Frost wrote about two diverging roads, and about taking the one less traveled. The Green Dragon Buddhist Monastery nestles under the bluffs on the north side of the Marin Headlands, California. Departing after a retreat from the Monastery, I looked back at the road and saw two paths, one less traveled. Considering my own life as an artist belonging but apart from the society around me, I realized that my path would always be one that is less traveled. My way would be different, and not for the faint of heart. With these thoughts, I composed my image, and made my photo.
About Nautilus on Black
This image of a cross-section of a Nautilus shell represents to me the symmetry and order that can be found in the heart of nature, which paradoxically combines order and disorder in a most anarchic but orderly way. In the imperfection of the world lies its perfection, perhaps nowhere better exemplified than in the famous Nautilus spiral.
