This mini-series represents the turning point from my earlier manipulations to my later strict photography. These were also my most wildly popular works.
These are true photographs, no manip other than tone. But I had been inspired by Ansel Adams
, that photo development could be drastic and evident.
One megapixel source shots, originally enhanced for small prints in 2003, then re-developed from scratch as 24" prints in 2004.
