For the past 14 years, I have worked on photographing The McCloud River capturing her beauty, wisdom, and humor. This work has grown out of a deep personal connection and relationship between man and wild. This is my McCloud River Project.
Once the McCloud River Project was complete it became evident that the body of work formed a narrative. Thus a publication was the next logical step.
In collaboration with Modernbook, a photography gallery and book publisher in San Francisco, this collection of photographs will be published into a fine art book in December 2012. The book will be hard-bound 10"x12”, 112 pages in an edition of 1000. In addition, we will also be publishing a limited edition of 100 with a signed print, numbered, matted and placed with the book in a handmade clam-shell box.
