May 5 - 15, 2017

The beauty and diversity of the landscape between Colorado and Phoenix were incredible. From the views of fourteeners around Leadville and a sunrise over the landforms in Monument Valley to the vistas of the Grand Canyon and the cacti of the Arizona desert, the trip provided an incredible inventory of the vast western landscape. The power and fragility of nature were on full display throughout the trip, as were the effects of human activity and development. The photographs in the series are a tribute to the beauty and importance of America's public lands, and a portion of the proceeds from all print sales will go to support non-profits working to protect and promote our public lands.

LARGE things coming to Daps Breakfast and Imbibe in Charleston's Westside Neighborhood

 
 

Be on the lookout for the opening of Charleston's newest all day breakfast and bar spot Daps Breakfast and Imbibe. I can't reveal much information until the opening, but here's a hint from Daps Instagram. The place is going to look incredible thanks to the talented Taylor DeBartola (of Taylor DeBartola Interiors), and it's been great working with him and the guys from Daps on my largest work yet! Stay tuned...

Cape Town

If you've been following along with my Instagram, you already know that I went to Cape Town, South Africa last month. It was an incredible trip and experience, and I'm slowly making my way through the photographs. It was one of the most beautiful places I've been, and I can't wait to share the photos! Now it's time to plan another adventure...

Also, if you haven't been following along, Cape Town is on the brink of becoming the first major world city to run out of water. It's a scary situation, and one I think we all can/should learn from. It's possible that with big conservation push and agriculture usage of water declining that Cape Town can avoid 'Day Zero', but it looks like it is going to be very hard. Next time you take a long, hot shower, think of the people of Cape Town and imagine doing it in under a minute or two. 

I hope your year has started off well, and I hope to see you at J. Stark on Friday, February 23rd!

Cheers!
