Places - 1995

Places, late 1990's,  took me on a road trip through France. It had been a decade since working at the Toronto Sun Newspaper and I was still interested in photo reportage. I had just finished my in-studio work with the SX-70 camera, The IRIS Prints and I was now interested in working with this saturated palette and painterly technique en plain air, a French phrase that literally means in the open air. No longer using a 35mm Nikon and black and white Tri-X film I wanted to venture out of my studio into nature to investigate and capture the effects of a more naturalistic light and shadow.
