I created this series of photographs during the earliest period of my photography practice from 1997-2009. During that period I was making my photographs on film even though digital cameras were gaining in popularity and making big strides in image fidelity.
My preference of film was Fuji Velvia 50, a high-saturation and unforgiving high-contrast color slide film. I felt a particular affinity for Velvia because I learned how to express the landscape evocatively and colorfully with it.
My creative vision took on qualities of the film: strong, vivid colors and deep blacks in the shadows. I developed a style that worked well with the film. Equally, my choice of film influenced my photography.
The photographs I have curated for this collection convey the bold colors and simple, strong graphic shapes during the formative years of my early career.
My early career photographs are the ultimate print choice for serious collectors.
A note about ordering:
Photographs within my Early Career Collections are Limited Edition photographs, personally hand-signed and numbered by me. Each edition is limited to 20 prints, regardless of size. When the edition reaches 20 prints, I retire the photograph from further printing.
