When you think of still-life do images like these come to mind? They are examples of a way of thinking about still-life that has been with us since the 16th century.
Would you like to explore a reimagined way of using still-life to tell a story, get inside the core of a subject, and create images with your Smartphone? Like master painters, learn how to use light, shadow, perspective, shape and contour, space, and composition.
Recently I led a workshop reimagining still-life as a way of journaling and storytelling. Tim and Lisa, students in the workshop discovered they could create images on a card table using inexpensive lighting bought at the hardware store.

The area of Sagano Japan has a remarkably beautiful calm and peaceful bamboo grove. There is wonderful sound when the wind blows through the bamboo causing it to knock together. Put that together with the sound of rain and your ready for a peaceful nights rest.

Design found within industrial subjects can be powerfully graphic and colorful. This image is a detail of a blade of a Pratt & Whitney commercial aircraft engine. A moire image is created across the surface of the blade to reveal any imperfections.
These strong graphic and colorful images look wonderful, particularly within a modern architectural setting.

Strong graphic colorful images from industrial subjects.
Industry is built using engineering design. I’ve always appreciated the elegance of design be it in fine art drawings, fashion, or industrial design. Often the clearer the concept the cleaner the design. Long ago the Shakers and Danish designers illustrated that truth.
This image is a sonar mapping image of the floor of the Gulf of Mexico identifying were there are voids in the earth, where there is crude oil and where there is natural gas.
Once again when we turn our attention to nature we often see elegant design and beauty.

I was walking down fifth avenue and saw this image, paused turned back and asked the person if it would be ok to make an image of their shoes. They looked a little puzzled, but said, ok. After making the image I showed it to them and they said, “wow very cool, I had no idea”.
One of the great satisfactions of photography is being able to make an image of those fleeting moments that we come upon every day.
I’ve always thought of myself as an observer. As such photography became the means by which I could communicate what I saw.
While living in New York City I often made a study of the twin towers of the World Trade Center. Living in midtown I would look downtown and see the towers. Moving around the city and coming up from the subway I would look for the towers giving me an immediate sense of where I was in the city. They became an orientation a defining feature of the cityscape.
Over the years I photographed a variety of assignments there; Buckminster Fuller giving a lecture, and ad for Windows on the World, corporate marketing for UPS, etc. As I moved around the city I would observe the towers making images of them in relationship to the various neighborhoods. Like many New Yorkers I oriented physically and psychologically with the twin towers. That sense remains with me, I think it always will.
