Photography magazines keep referring to “work flow.” Some of us find that flow and work are rarely linked. Files get mislabeled, simple steps become incredibly complex and the image that initially looked good becomes so blah that everything comes to a halt in despair. And yet progress is made; some tasks get kicked forward until they finally cross the finish line.
The first of my recent projects was in response to a request for a mini portfolio of Four Himalayan Photographs. These are to be donated to a college art department as an alumni gift. The intention was that the group of photographs would be a teaching aid, a representation of my best work, and an adjunct my book Himalayan Portfolios; Journeys of the Imagination. The mat size selected, 20x24, would allow the pictures to be used as a dramatic wall display, or be hand held for study, or just hidden in the archives to be awakened by the horn call of a wandering adventurer.
