I have been taking pictures for most of my
life, starting when I was a boy with a kodak
brownie. I graduated to a 35mm SLR after
the service. I took pictures on vacation, at
sporting events, pictures of nature,
buildings, people on the street... whatever
caught my eye. About 1998 I purchased an
inexpensive medium format twin-lens- reflex
(tlr) camera. The larger negatives made the
prints seem much more vibrant, much more
'3-d' to my eye. In 2000 I purchased a 4x5
large format camera, and things have never
been the same. I enjoy the ritual of setting
up the tripod and camera, selecting the
correct lens and taking hand-held meter
readings of the scene before me. The
slower, more contemplative nature of large
format forced me to consider each picture
in depth. I made some prints. A local gallery
agreed to show my work.

I hope the viewer isn't concerned with how
the image is captured or how the image is
printed. Because ultimately, it's all about the
image itself. I hope you enjoy my work... and
i invite your comments.

Thank you,
Bob K.
