I am a fine-art photographer based in Tucson, Arizona. My work explores the intersection of personal and collective memories, particularly as they relate to photography, and is a merging of the autobiographical and the universal. I need help from the Kickstarter community to raise funding to produce and print the first publication of my photographs, an overview of the last ten years of my work. This catalogue will be released in connection with an exhibition of my photographs entitled "Retrospective", which opens in October, 2011, at Wall Space Gallery in Santa Barbara, CA. I have crafted a tight edit of my strongest work for this collection, which will feature an introduction by Rebecca Senf, Ph.D, Norton Family Curator, Center for Creative Photography, Tucson, Arizona. It will be printed in a small edition of only 500 softbound copies. A special limited edition of 50 numbered copies accompanied by a toned silver gelatin print will also be available. The limited edition is being designed and produced by Jace Graf of Cloverleaf Studio in Austin, Texas.

Pictured above is Trinity, the 5"x7" split-toned silver gelatin print that is part of the gift for pledges at the $100 level.

Pictured above is Seen and Not Seen #94-3, one of the two 8"x10" split-toned silver gelatin prints (edition of 20) that patrons who pledge at the $250 level can choose from as part of their gift.

Pictured above is A Dream Half Remembered #ZD-54-11/12, one of the two 8"x10" split-toned silver gelatin prints (edition of 20) that patrons who pledge at the $250 level can choose from as part of their gift.

Pictured above is Not Dark Yet #ZVB-52-9, the 11"x14" split-toned silver gelatin print (edition of 9) that is part of the gift for pledges at the $500 level.

Kickstarter Exclusive: For pledges of $750 or greater, your gift will include all items from the $500 level, plus a signed 8"x10" silver gelatin proof sheet of one roll of 120mm film, featuring at least one image from either the A Dream Half Remembered or Missing series (artist's choice.)

Kickstarter Exclusive :Pictured above is one of my signature images, Seen and Not Seen #1311-3, as seen on the catalogue's cover. For the first pledge of $2,500 or greater, your gifts will include a vintage signed 11"x14" split-toned silver gelatin print of this image. Only one print of this image will be offered to donors.
