Corn shucks


This site is a suite of photographs taken in 2005 and 2006. I used two digital cameras, a Canon S50 and a Canon 20D. All were shot as RAW files and edited in Photoshop.

The five subjects or themes are ones which have interested me in the work of other painters and photographers all my life and they have come together for me here. I hope they have an elemental, mythic look.

They also seem to me to be an example of ‘old age art’ (I was born in 1932). By that I mean an art that aspires to a kind of timelessness and communicates a sense of mortality.

They were taken in a variety of different places some, literally, in my own backyard and others in Europe and other parts of the United States.
