The images hopefully will carry you to a place where you may find comfort with your memories or depict the world as people fear it rather than what we want it to be.

My images are all taken with various types of black and white and color film. I use common photographic paper as well as preparing light sensitized material to print on. The coloring of the images are hand colored using pastels, charcoal and transparent oils. Giclee prints are scanned and printed without any computer manipulation. Colors do vary slightly from gelatin prints to giclee prints due to the complexity of tones no scanner can capture

These images are the result of deliberate or accidental use of an idea. The fundamental concept of separating the grays to produce the image remains the foundation of my art while inclusion of color, shadow, dimension and angle compliment the print rather than providing a barrage of new techniques to stimulate the viewer’s perception. Photographers take great pleasure in introducing change for “change sake”. Change in how photography is viewed, purchased and discussed as fine art is highly valued among purists in the world of pure ideas.

My work has never been classified as “pretty” even though some of the images are easy to the eye. My attempt is to provide an avenue which may induce or resurrect happiness, sadness, anger or metaphysical thoughts. The image could invoke a socio-political spark coupled with social commentary or just a barren wasteland devoid of reality as we all see it around us… The images hopefully do not indicate any devotion to abstraction, victim group protest or just mockery of intelligence or emotions.

Hi Doug,
Your work is very compelling. I was hoping there would be a place to post a comment for the public to see.
