This 5×7 print hangs above the antique desk in my gallery.
More than one visitor has commented about the “preserved” butterfly …. they have all seemed genuinely surprised when I showed them that it is a photograph.

Great Basin Life exists … between … high desert expanses and majestic mountain wilderness.

Daily, I watch the winds of change sweeping away what remains of our western culture and heritage, and the land that has produced them.

My mission is to preserve as much as I can, of that which will soon vanish, through my photography.
