Book of my work or books I have designed/published.
Exposing Saints takes you on a journey starting in NJ and takes you throughout the Southwest of the US. We start with low depth-of-field in NJ and work our way to higher depth-of-field once we reach Utah. The history of photography is also relevant with a whimsical humor about the potential photography saints one may call upon during their photographic endeavors.

Peripheral visions: Side vision. The ability to see objects and movement outside of the direct line of vision. Peripheral vision is the work of the rods, nerve cells located largely outside the macula (the center) of the retina. The rods are also responsible for night vision and low-light vision but are insensitive to color. As opposed to central vision.
I try to portray the landscape as I observe it within the moment that I am first discovering the subtleness of the area. We choose our experiences in life, and I am only trying to portray those experiences I have chosen, with an audience. I choose a part of the landscape that I have experienced and try to express what I felt was most influential about that particular scene. My personal experience alters these landscapes and therefore changes the way in which observers can view them. Observers of these photographs are looking at the scenes through my eyes and experiences, as well as pulling their own experiences from these photographs.
I often observe a scene and look for a composition that fits within my personal vision of stretched lines, forms, compositions, as well as spectral sensitivity. Many of the scenes have been altered by what I have chosen to capture within the frame and what I have decided to eliminate. The scenes have also been warped or distorted by my constant use of wide-angle lenses. This sense of capturing a limited yet distorted part of the landscape is what entices me to keep observing and capturing moments and scenes throughout my life.

Louis H. Draper, Selected Photographs
Lou was my largest mentor in my career and taught me more about visualizing a finished photograph and body of work, being a working photographer, and how to be an educator.
I had the honor to design and publish his book after his passing in conjunction with Mercer County Community College. I also had the distinct honor of working with Kamoinge and many of Lou’s friends on the editing.
