I embarking on a new journey. Today I began work on another project; archimage ART. This website will hold the more experimental work I am experimenting with. Admittedly, it is being inspired by all the web chatter about NTFs (non-fungible token). I am just dipping my toe into this genre of art making. Please take a look at the new web site and let me know your thoughts. A work in progress.

I have a website, an Instagram page, a Twitter page, and this Blog. I don't get many visitors to any of them, usually my friends and family. Every once in a while someone I do not know comes by and visits one of these sites. I have been doing this for quite some time as a means to get my art out into the world.
I also submit my art work every once in awhile to "call for art" that galleries post. This is a source of great frustration since out of 10 submittals, my work may be accepted by one or two galleries. So this year, 2021 I am going to try and post to this blog more frequently as a means to generate more interest in my art work. Following are a list of topics I have been thinking about to write in this blog, not necessarily in any order or priority:
- Art projects in process
- Making photobooks and why
- Color vs black and white photography
- The photo image as art work (this will be primarily about my work)
- Photo art aesthetics

I have been collecting photobooks for about forty years. I love the way they feel and the intimate viewing distance looking at one. The photographs presented in a book is so much different than when viewing one on a wall in a gallery or museum. How the photographs are sequenced provide a very different "narrative" than any one photograph by itself. This essay by Teju Cole, "In Praise of the Photobook" sums up many of the reasons why a photobook is unique.
