Reverence was a central element of my youth, as I was born in Thailand of missionary parents. Now, reverence is a key theme of my image making, the thread that links the portfolios I’m sharing here.

All of these portfolios are printed in monochrome to bring out their reverent nature, using either the 150-year-old platinotype process or archival digital printing with pigment inks. The platinotypes are made by Oakland-based master print maker Allen McKinney, the digital prints by me.

After being highly peripatetic in my youth, I have been happily stationary in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California since the early 1990s.
