In 1978 I packed up a van and headed west to explore the legendary landscape of America. It was a turning point in many ways. I was awed by the red rock and vivid blue skies of the American West and switched from black and white to color film. When I returned home I set up my darkroom to make color prints and jumped into my new life of travel and photography. As years passed so did more trips west, north and south. This portfolio includes some of my work from that first trip to recent travels.
