      Aye Mates,
      As a visual artist I continually seek to evoke emotion and contemplation through the images I bring to the viewer. Last year, I presented a series of photo's that I had titled "WRECKLAMATION". The series featured a 1953 Mack Dump Body Truck that had been sitting on a farm property for many years. The series was a month by month comparative of environmental changes over the course of an entire year as was relative to the seemingly constant state of the truck. The series was a popular one on this forum and several others. I received commentary from around the globe and the connection betwixt people, the truck, and the surrounding land was one that stirred the thoughts of many viewers.

      I am embarking on yet another such series that I am titling "AGRI-RUINS" which will focus on buildings and equipment related to agriculture that have fallen into various states of neglect or disrepair. It is my hope that the photo series brings to thought the disconnect betwixt current day mainstream society and our once prevalent agricultural past. As we move into a the future with continuing disregard for the land and all that is dependent on it, it is my hope that this series brings a more intense focus to each viewer of how dependent we as humans and the wildlife we cherish are on our dwindling agricultural lands. "NO FARMS - NO FOOD".

      The series "AGRI-RUINS" will aptly start in October, a month commonly associated with harvest.

      On first quick glance this appears to be a photo of evergreens on a ridge with a background of granite based, snow draped peaks.

      I look forward to seeing the photo series.

      So excited to see this new series as it evolves. So loved Wrecklamation. I occasionally think of that truck, wondering how it is doing, like an old friend.
