Capitol Reef

The gum dichromate landscapes, chemigrams and other alternative process photographs in the Capitol Reef series in this portfolio are representative of spiritual inklings and sublime beauty. These desert images from Capital Reef National Park are symbols of retreat and spiritual seeking. When camping, hiking, painting, and photographing in nature I often recall a line from The Private Banquet by the poet Rumi:
“The sense of sight is too weak to take in this reality.”

For this artist, the quirks and flaws in alternative process photographs are an integral part of each image and a way of visualizing the spiritual unseen all around us.
