I haven’t entered any shows or open calls over the last two years as I have been devoting my energy to creating a cohesive body of work. However, Rust Belt Biennial, judged by Andrew Moore caught my eye and I was very happy to have been selected as one of the top 15 entrants. The image below will be shown in Wilkes-Barre from August 27-Oct 6. If you are in the area, please stop by and check out some great work.
My history monograph, "How the West Was Drawn: Mapping, Indians and the Construction of the Trans-Mississippi West" is now out with University of Nebraska Press.
Excited to be asked to participate in the ImageNation photo show in Paris. If you are in the City of Light Nov. 10-12, stop by (and tell me how it looks).

Ever since I did my tour of the old Ohio Route 7 for the Ohio Guide Project, I have wanted to get back to the eastern part of the state where, as President Obama famously said, people "cling to their guns and religion." I drove out there a couple of days ago to take a few snaps.
I have managed to get out and shoot everyday for the past two weeks. I am struggling to find clean, graphic landscapes now that that snow has melted, but I have taken a few interesting snaps.
Honored to have had this image chose by the legendary photographer Sam Abell as part of the “Composed” show at PhotoPlace Gallery in my home state of Vermont. To see other selections, visit http://photoplacegallery.com/composed/
I got back the first set of 5x7 negatives from Praus Productions and realized what an uphill battle this shift into large format films going to be. Most of the images I took with 5x7 were infinitely easier to produce and process on my Canon than on the Chamonix and for the interweb, the difference is more emotional than aesthetic. Regardless, I am enjoying the process shooting with the 5x7 immensely and when the time comes to print large, I will have the negs. Here are a few exposures I didn't take on my canon.
