Sacramento Valley Rice 01, c. 1986

As a photographer, I have always been drawn to photograph large structures such as this. My eye was drawn to study bridges, towers, buildings, railroads, aircraft, and ships. I consider these elements to play major roles in the landscape, and as an artist it is my job to showcase the elements that I find create the composition that is most appealing to my aesthetic sense.

This photograph is one of many that I took on a week-long expedition to the valley. I think the trip occurred in about 1986. Back then I was using a Rollicord and for this series I used some of my stock of fine-grain Panatomic X film. I scanned this negative at 6400dpi to capture as much detail as I could.
