Sienna Woods

This series of photographs grew out of the desire to photograph woods in the winter time. It was originally to be titled "The Winter Brush Series". The name was changed to "Sienna Woods" to more accurately describe the subject matter and the subsequent sepia tone later applied to the printing.

Originally the negatives were printed by traditional means in a wet darkroom. The paper of choice was Agfa Multicontrast Classic Matte. That paper was discontinued and in order to continue adding new images to the series, it was necessary to scan all of the negatives and reprint them digitally on archival inkjet media. However a new darkroom paper has surfaced which mimics the Agfa paper and I am now pleased to announce that I can once again print these images by traditional means.

This work has been shown at the PhotoZone Gallery and the Jacobs Gallery in Eugene, Oregon.

Below are a few of the images from that series which numbers currently well over 50 images and growing.
Some images here are too new to be in the interactive pdf file or the book.

I am beginning to print many of the Sienna Woods series in Palladium. Some images lend themselves nicely to this medium, others do not.
