ARTIST BIO

EVENTS & EXHIBITIONS

Growing up in the Arizona-Sonora desert teaches many things, a respect for the way nature takes care of itself, along with a realization of the frailty, as well as resiliency, of life. Richard’s landscapes are an attempt to reflect those messages and his studio work is marked by its simplicity.

Among the last to switch from film, in 2009 Richard started building prints that crossed an 1870’s platinum process with modern digital technology as a means of expression. Never satisfied with his results, his work is continually changing as it continues to evolve.

Richard’s favorite quote comes from one of his patrons: “your photographs give me peace.”
