This is the space that I am going to use to present my archive of work prior to 2000.

Going through old negatives I realized that I should digitize many of my old photographs. Many of the negatives were never printed, nor seen, and this is a chance to play catch up. From time to time I will lump a group into an online gallery.

This is not intended to be a retrospective of my best old photographs and I do not intend this to be an exercise in nostalgia. I am going to present the photographs that interest me and I hope that they give you enjoyment.

Vulgar Boatmen Portraits

I'm going to post some photographs from a shoot that Satch and I did a long time ago (early 1990's) with The Vulgar Boatmen.  I'm going to try to find Satch's 35mm negatives - she had some great photographs.  (Click on the photo to enlarge)

Taos Pueblo, Hlaukkwima

Hlaukkwima in the early afternoon.

I do know when I made this photograph as I still have the tag from my photography permit - September 28, 1993, just a couple of short days before the Feast of San Geronimo.

St. Francis, Ranchos de Taos, NM

Another photograph of St. Francis - a detail of the rear of the church quite a while before the thunderstorm showed up.

High Road To Taos, NM

This photograph was made on the High Road to Taos.  If memory serves me, that's right, no notes other than the date of 1993, I believe that this scene was just north of Madrid.

By now I bet that you know to click on the photograph to enlarge.

Digging Thru The Archives

Here's a photograph from the back courtyard at Santuario in Chimayo, NM. I'm digging though the old negatives and came upon this picture.  It brings back incredibly strong memories of the Santuario and the part that it has played in our lives. Yes, the light behind Christ's head was exactly like you see. It faded directly after I made the photograph.

Perspectives of Intent

Here is a book that Satch and I put together a few years ago. It is composed of Satch's assemblages, many of which were shown in her solo exhibit "Metaphors and Dichotomies." The photographs were made in the early 2000's before I started working with plastic cameras.

Please check out the book. If you purchase a copy from Blurb I will include a printed photograph from the book at no extra charge. Just let me know that you bought the book and I'll get the print right out. Click on the Book Info link to go to blurb for additional information.

I suggest that you use the full screen option to view the book.

Here is a photograph from 1994 made in Scotland. I think it was made in Lossiemouth. The pier went out into the North Sea.

Here's a photograph from the new box of old negatives that I found a few weeks back. It was made in 1994 (I think) and is a lowrider taken next to a taco stand across the road from Santuario de Chimayo in New Mexico.

Another Box

I found another box of 2 1/4 negatives - Indiana, a little NM, a few of CA and a bunch of photos of the Vulgar Boatmen from the early 1990's. In another box I found some 4x5 portraits of the VB. Will continue to post photographs that interest me out of the archive. For now, here's one from Turkey Run. I was going through my "Siskind/Callahan" period when this was made.

Here's a landscape photograph from a 4"x5" negative that was made somewhere west of the Rio Grande Gorge bridge near Taos, New Mexico back in September of 1995. To get to the west side of the gorge, I can guarantee that Satch drove the car across that bridge.

Rock Wall and Water Abstract

While hiking in New Mexico in 1993, Satch and I came across a waterfall in a woods. We were at a higher elevation and out of the desert, probably somewhere between Truchas and Taos. The small stream was also working its way along and through some rock faces adjacent to the waterfall. This abstract was a small part of that area.

Vallonia, Indiana Cemetery

This photograph from a 4"x5" negative made in November 1994, was made while photographing small towns in Indiana. On a small rise in a farm field, the cemetery is just south of Vallonia on State Road 135.

Solsberry, Indiana

Thought I'd dig through the old 4"x5" negatives this morning.

In the early 1990s I photographed towns in Indiana that were in the process of dying. Corporate farming and centralization of business around large cities was killing these towns. It was obvious that a way of life was blowing away in the wind. When I would travel for work I would stick to the back roads. Over just a few years in the late 1980's through the early 1990's the erosion in these towns was obvious. The buildings that were constructed in a different time were really starting to show their age and, in most cases, were not being used for the original intent. For example, this building, the Yo Ho Grocery in Solsberry, Indiana was originally the local Masonic Hall. Indiana used to have a thriving rural life; unfortunately much of it is gone forever.

I actually noted the date I made this photo on the negative sleeve - August 23, 1992.

Penitente Morada, Abiquiu, New Mexico

From 1995, here is a photograph of the Penitente Morada in Abiquiu, formally known as La Morada de Nuestra Senora de Dolores del Alto de Abiquiu. Photographic research on the net shows that the morada has undergone a major face lift.

Abiquiu, New Mexico

Here's a 1995 landscape from New Mexico. Taken in the Ghost Ranch area near Abiquiu, Cerro Perdenal is seen on the horizon. This is O'Keefe country. The view of the sky just seems to go on forever.
