THE FILE 50,000 digital electronic images 35mm; originals and high quality duplicates.
OVERVIEW Mountains, deserts, oceans and cultures of the world. Daring and pristine exploration on almost every continent. Images of traveling on foot, skis, snowshoes and bicycle, accompanied by yaks, horses, camels or porters. New countries. Diverse cultures. Trekking, high altitude mountain traverses, mountain climbs, cycling and exploration in untouched beauty and harsh ruggedness of the lands and its people. Day-to-day life with local people. Some of the more exotic places and countries were done at a time when we were living in a less politically turbulent world. The inherent situations that can slam you can also force you to learn quickly to be ready and react instantaneously. I can compare the critical moment when suddenly and unexpectedly an image unfolds to that same nervous excitement I have had in the past competing in world class sports. Translating the moment onto a camera is a different story. It's the neverending process of looking and learning to finally capture that one image that tells the story. Yet, "the story" never ends. I find there is always something new with "Life with a Camera."
