Artist Statement In 1993 I embarked on an extended voyage to photograph the
American landscape with high resolution panoramic cameras.

I used several cameras including the Fuji G-617, the V-Pan 617 Mark III
and more recently, high resolution Canon digital cameras including the
5d Mark II. To create panoramas with the digital camera I need to
combine 15 or more files to approach the enormous resolution
of 6X17 film. I still use the V-Pan 617 for special projects.

It has been an interesting journey that has taken me all around our great
country. During that time I visited many historic sites and most of our
magnificent cities. One thing that struck me has been the kindness
and helpful spirit of the people I met along the way.

It has been a great opportunity to learn about remarkable locations and
people. For example, I was able to travel a remote section of the Oregon trail in Idaho. That night I camped out along the trail with no sign of civilization in any direction. I also traveled the length of old Route 66
from LA to Chicago and then turned around and followed it back to California!

I visited the source of the Missouri River in Montana, and reached down
to taste the cold, crystal clear water, as Meriwether Lewis had done
200 years earlier. A few months later, I found his final resting
place along the Natchez Trace in Tennessee.

There have been many moving moments during this long journey.
And, by the way, I was able to make some good panoramic photographs
which I will be adding to the galleries here soon.

Please accept my invitation to stop by here again. If you would like to see larger images please visit my website:
