Small vignettes inspired by landscape oil painters, who carefully arrange their subject matter to create formally strong yet quiet compositions. These photographs document groupings of houses and farm buildings, center pivot sprinklers, trucks and storage tanks, trees and cultivated fields that form the society and the visual field of the San Luis Valley's agricultural economy. Work in progress. I welcome your comments or thoughts.
