I am finally showing a project that I have been working on since 2016. I have been recording daily all of the major news channels on my iPhone to record this time in history. We all know where the idea of “Fake News” comes from and this is our chance to look at all of the records for ourselves. This work is recording the news in a historical context and you can judge for yourself what you think of the information being provided.

My family and I had a great time visiting CameraWork Gallery in Scranton, PA for my solo exhibition of Thou Art…, Will Give… A few family members from Bethlehem, PA made the trip as well.
I had the pleasure to travel to Eugene, Oregon to present and artist talk and a few class presentations to the students at Lane Community College. I was very impressed with the students and facilities, as well as, the community of people at the college.
I was thrilled to be one of the 20 people selected to be a participant of the Click Photofest 2018. It was an ABSOLUTELY stellar and star packed group of photographers. It was great meeting all of the reviewers and participants. I hope our paths cross again many times int he future.
Enjoyed my visit to Pittsburg, KS to deliver my artist talk along with a few class presentations. Always great to see the one and only Rhona (Shand) McBain and to meet her wonderful (and very smart) husband Jim.
This image was taken by one of my students David Arkin in the midst of trying to sequence the "Thou Art..., Will Give... exhibition at the Dyer Arts Center. All four galleries were used for the exhibition that served as a marker for my personal completion of the project. Yet to come will be the book so Eastern State Penitentiary can sell it in the gift shop.
A few views of some Gum Bichromate prints for my upcoming exhibition at RIT.
Just finished building a non-silver darkroom in the studio. Used it to develop Polaroid Type 55 film I exposed two years ago.

The inside material is created with Asahi Japanese silk. The internal paper is Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308gsm.
We finally have a large standing book press at the studio!
