Recent Color

I have always enjoyed color and taught color theory for years at Western Michigan University as a component of foundation design and as part of the photography curriculum. I did not use color in my various photographic series because color was not core to the concept. This body of color work is for me a fun response to places that I enjoy. The Western landscape pieces occurred while researching for sites for the Night Light series and the winter landscape images are from where I live, that is to say, from my backyard.
