This boy coasted up and down the sidewalk on skates behind his sleek young dog, his hand tight on the dog's leash. And when the boy stopped he seemed to puzzle over the right way to tie the dog to a pole. But the dog stood still without the leash, tethered by his gaze on the distracted master.
I created large format silver photographs of my home town for 20 years from 1990 through 2010. These are rich, beautifully crafted silver images processed for permanence. Vintage prints are made within a year of the photograph create date. My usual practice was to print within a few days or weeks of exposure. There are at most six prints per image; most images have three or fewer prints.
