I am deeply into the production of my project for my upcoming Group Show, Light on China for the Green Hill Arts Center. The photographs were made over three years ago. Both of the projects for this show will have between ten and fifteen photographs from Mongolia. There was not much time taken in the pure photographic work involved in creating the images, but there has been a great deal of time in getting to the final realization of the project. There is no doubt in my mind that the reason for (what some may think) is a long time between photography and completion is due to the way I work. I rarely make a single photograph, but choose to work in terms of multiple image projects. There is a lot more work to create a project because it takes time to develop the thoughts behind the project and writing about photography is a very time consuming and difficult task.
I have already completed one small project (Desert Snow) from this “once in a lifetime” trip For the rest of the Mongolia photographs it will be at least three and a half years between the time I made the photographs and the time they are fully realized into a completed project.
