This beauty traveled all the way to the Somerville Toy Camera Festival to be displayed at the Brickbottom Gallery from Sept 6 – Oct 13, 2018. I would like to thank juror Jennifer Shaw for including my work in this exhibition and the folks at Brickbottom Gallery for being such hospitable hosts.
This piece, titled Northwest Merge, is from a new double exposure series I have been working on with my Holga. This simple camera has been a wonderful part of my creative process lately and I look forward to sharing the images with you all soon. Stay tuned.

I have the pleasure of being included in the Plastic Fantastic Show IX at Lightbox Photographic Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. The exhibition will be up through July 10th. If you are able to make it out that way, please make sure you stop in and view all of the beautiful, hand-crafted imagery. I feel honored to have been selected by curator Susan Burnstine. The image chosen is one of my all time favorites created with the Holga 120N. It is a triple exposure on color film from my adventure up Dog Mountain in the spring of 2017; my first true wild flower experience in the Northwest.
You may view an online gallery of the selected images here.
A very big thank you goes to Susan and the team at Lightbox for hosting such a wonderful collection.
The following images are my personal favorites from a multiple exposure film swap between myself and my pal Mike. He focused on organic shapes and textures while I focused on inorganic objects and space. I shot my frames in Las Vegas, over his frames exposed in Oregon. It turned out that the cameras we chose to use loaded the film opposite from one another. As a result my images exposed upside down on top of his. It was a fun experiment to share with a friend and I am looking forward to many more attempts in the coming year.
All images created on 35mm Ilford HP5. July 2017.
