About this site

My attempts at art were inspired by a travel friend, an accomplished artist, who kept a travel journal consisting of simple sketches and water colours done on the trip. Her ability to capture the atmosphere and essence of the experience so exceeded my photographs, that I began to explore the simplification and abstraction of my images while retaining or perhaps enhancing their ability to capture my experiences. Much of what I present here is personal recollection, created for the pleasure of revisiting my travel experiences and of creating a vehicle (this web site) to share them if anyone is interested. They are personal and are conditioned by previous experiences, by preference, moods, attitudes, and biases. They are entirely subjective; not even my photographs can make any claim to objectivity because my subject matter and how I choose to portray it are equally personal. Not all of the travel images are my own. When my own images are inadequate, I borrow shamelessly from my wife Sheila Jeck.

Sales

I don’t actively market my work, but if you are interested in acquiring a piece, contact me. I print signed and numbered limited editions (5 -20), on archival media with archival inks and can print images a maximum of 44” on the shortest dimension. Canvas prints stretched on a wooden frame require a 2” border, so the maximum display size  is 40” on the shortest dimension. Costs vary by number of prints in an edition, media, and size but will range from $250 for smaller prints to $ 3,000 for larger images (shipping not included).

About me

I enjoy both the experience of travel and recording some of that experience in photos and journals. I travel with my wife Sheila. We  travel in a small camper-van, often for months at a time, and we are still together. Sheila reads the guidebooks and chooses our itinerary, I follow her directions and reap the reward of discovery, unconditioned by expectations. Organizing these materials for my own use and review, I found that a web page format worked well, and having produced what was really a personal web page, I decided to share the materials with anyone who may be interested by publishing to a publicly accessible website. The events, places, and feelings are described as I experienced and recorded them in my daily journal, much of the background material was added during production of the web site.
