Treasured Montana Artist Statement

I can still remember my first camera and the vivid smells and spectacular light of childhood in the New Mexico wilderness, mountains and desert. It was an amazing place to grow up, but in hindsight, nothing compares to the pure splendor of the magnificent and diverse landscape of Montana. For ten years I have attempted to capture this world through new eyes and a new lens to offer a large field of view in a small slice of time in the great place I call home.

In this collection, there are many images that each tell their own story, whether just for plain fun, or alternating between historical documentation and compositions of beauty alone. There have been quite a few changes in the short time since I began this process, and my hope is that these images will tell their small part.

Over the years I’ve covered quite a bit of ground, and I believe it is possible to still be captivated everywhere I go by the space, life, and great people of Montana.
