A couple of years ago I received a very special gift for my 65th birthday from my wife and daughter: a helicopter tour to the Spiral Jetty in the Great Salt Lake. The trip was extraordinary for several reasons. First, it was my first chopper flight, a tiny one at that. Second, the Spiral Jetty was a special art I would see. Third, the waters and the surrounds of the lake offered a color spectrum, unlike anything I could imagine. During that 90-minute flight, I took many photographs from aerial angles, admiring and being dazzled by the colors below. Although I have shown some of them before, I am now organizing them into small bodies of work that reflect a vision, a microcosm so to speak.
The first group is “The Pastel Collection” that includes five photographs in soft cool tones with a salty appearance. Below are the contents and the cover of the collection:
