Snow Day - Images from the Grand Tetons


I'm excited to announce a new series of work, presented as a solo exhibition at Kellar Mahaney Gallery. All the images are from one day in the Grand Tetons. I previously wrote about that day here. Here's the info:

SNOW DAY

Snow Day is a series of photographs taken among the Grand Tetons in Wyoming on an afternoon's walk to Taggart Lake.  We were nineteen days into a two-month wilderness road trip in October of 2008 and these photos capture the season's very first snow.

In the months prior, we converted a Chevy cargo van into a camper, outfitting it with a pop-up top, bed, stove, bathroom, backpacking gear and guitar. I brought along my camera and my wife Hannah (who was five months pregnant then) brought along a sense of adventure.

There isn't anything much better than fresh snow to pique my curiosity of transitions, mystery and wonder. We had hiked for several days before in wearing, drizzling rain.  We went to bed in anticipation and we woke up to a frosted landscape.  It was a snow day.

Ummm... the road trip was in 2008, yes? I'm thinking we saw you in Louisville last October, so you couldn't have been on the road already...

Jim. You're correct, the camper van trip was in 2008. I think the years are all blurring together as I near middle-age. Although, I was in Louisville in 2008 as well. We hit the road a week or two after St. James.
