Priceless.

My two favorite subjects of all time.

On the left is the original portrait done when they were little kids and now as young adults.

Butterflies Are Free.

Last year I proposed creating an original piece of artwork to Greg Ralph, the marketing director at Monarch mountain resort.

The mosaic was assembled by stitching together more than 400 photographs I’ve shot over the ten years that I’ve worked with the Monarch team. I experimented with several variations for the main image before finally settling on the butterfly.

Measuring three feet high by five feet wide, the finished piece has an abstract quality from a distance, but the individual photographs of skiers and snowboarders are revealed once the viewer steps closer to inspect it.

We delivered the piece last week and it was installed next to the dining area entrance at the main lodge.

In 1978 the city of Los Angeles began forced busing of students to fully integrate the metropolitan public schools.

After making the usual busing photographs, I found these two classmates on the playground of one of the area junior high schools.

One Face of Alzheimer’s.

Meet our Uncle Joe.

A year ago, Joe was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. At 90 years of age he continues to do remarkably well.

Our cousin Michael is his primary caregiver and with little outside help has done incredible work to make sure Joe is well cared for while remaining at home. Over the bed is a painting of Aunt Teddy who died nearly 20 years ago.

Though Joe’s memory continues to slide, his recollections of Teddy remain clear and vibrant as if he spoke with her just yesterday.
