The “Interior Illuminations” and “Avian Ascension” series began in the weeks before Halloween in 2022 I took many photos of skeletons, ghosts and ethereal spirits in people’s windows, porches and front yards. I later found skeletal x-rays of my body from personal chiropractic and health issues and incorporated those interior illumination images into many new artworks. Soon I found myself adding birds to that boneyard series of images, rising through rib cages and above skulls in a rising effort to ascend above the physical world.

After making many more images using birds and bones, gradually all vestiges of the skeletal world disappeared from those images and all that remained were birds and the vast broad and boundless skies where they live and soar. That series became “Avian Ascensions.”

The third series, “Flights of Fancy” feature bird and landscape images I made in previous years.
