About Large Format Photography and Carbon Pigment Prints

My goal is to create finely crafted black and white prints that reflect my vision of the landscape.

The process begins with an image captured using a medium-format digital camera, or in the case of earlier work, a high-resolution scan of an image captured on medium-format or large-format black and white film. Each image receives careful processing, and is then printed digitally with custom-mixed carbon pigment inks on acid-free fine art paper.

The prints are true to the subjects as originally captured; no manipulation beyond what was typically possible in a traditional darkroom is done. The prints exhibit a unique blend of detail, luminance, and tonality that gives them a look all their own.

Those who exhibit or acquire my work can be assured that the prints are crafted to the highest aesthetic and archival standards.
