Home portrait




I did an interesting home portrait today of a friends mother who was 92 and in her last days along with her brother. It was a modest home that echoed of memories and better days and I actually found it quite moving to photograph. These photos are ones I did more for myself than the client.

Tyson studio shoot with Carol

The 2018 Tyson studio season got off to a good start with a great photo session with Carol. I like to start the season with her, we've been photographing together since 1984 and have a very comfortable rhythm in the studio. Carol also brings a great sense of gesture and grace to her poses.

Jazz Fest

I've been to Jazz Fest only 4 times and this time really wanted to make it about the music and not trying to turn it into another long term project, so the day was mostly about making a few photos between venues.

Contact sheet scans

As part of my attempt to bring some organization to some of my older work, I have been scanning negative pages lacking contact sheets this week. Most of it is work from 1973-76. I do not know what I was thinking with my numbering system, its just one more thing to add to the list of topics to discuss with 1973 Stan when time travel is invented.

Latest addition to the "Matter of Faith Portfolio"



Just when you think you're done something comes along. In this case a church in the lower 9th ward I never thought would rebuild is in the process of doing so. In March I stumbled across a group from southern Indiana who were working hard to make it happen.
