Spring Landscapes

It has been a violent spring in Oklahoma.  The storms that have swept through the plains over the last few weeks have been record breaking in terms of size and destruction.  It is heartbreaking to look around at all the damage, but I have been happy to see everyone pull together and contribute to relief efforts.  Last week, I got to serve the “OK Chef’s Relief” fundraiser and eat the best Chinese food I’ve ever had in my life, served up by Danny Bowien of Mission Chinese Food, who with a team of chefs and artists raised a lot of money for storm victims with a two day pop-up restaurant.  This week, my favorite coffeeshop is putting together an impromptu art show to raise money for the Regional Food Bank, so I decided it was time to get some prints made.

During the last few months I have been shooting a lot of film, but I haven’t published any new work for a while, mainly because I’ve been so busy working and preparing for the big changes around the corner that I haven’t found very much time to sit in front of the computer and process it all.  This fall, I will be going to upstate New York to work on Hawthorne Valley Farm as an intern with their Visiting Students Program.  In the mean time, a lot is still up in the air…

But one thing is for sure.  The images featured in this post will be available for sale at Gray Owl Coffee starting this Tuesday, with all the proceeds going to the Food Bank.  Please come out and support this event if you can!
