Wordpress and Nordic Summit

It's been awhile since I've posted and for that I am dearly sorry but I intend to make it up to you!  Today I'm posting the link to my new wordpress blog, one that focuses on my photography.  I hope you all find it interesting and be sure to forward the link to your friends.

Here is a teaser image.  Let me know if you enjoy what you see there.

It Might Have Been

Tonight I find myself thinking a lot about someone very special.   A wonderful woman.  This piece is just a reflection of what was on my mind.  I don't normally share personal reasons involved in a piece but maybe she'll figure it out and know I was thinking about her.

Two New Pieces

Two more of my quick and playful pieces.  I realize a lot of you may look at these and think "what's going on here" well these are explorative pieces.  I'm seeking ways to engauge the viewer and active the image and the text.  I'm hoping that the viewer sees the image and begins to ask questions about the text, and the images and how they relate to each other.  What's going on here?  There is a deeper concept, a concept that needs to be found by digging through layers of meaning.  I'll write more about this pursuit in the future, for now I just hope you enjoy the images and let them bounce around in your head for awhile.

Another New Playful Piece

Another new piece, I'm planning to make at least one of these simple pieces a day with the goal of using composition to explore ways to activate image and text.

Another Playful Piece

Again, playing with minimal and clean images, trying to be both playful and meaningful.  Enjoy.  Joe

The internet is a huge world that makes our physical world much, much smaller.  To strech myself out into new realms and hopefully get my work seen more often I've made a Tumblr page, I hope you'll all head over there and check it out and if you have a Tumblr as well then add me.  Thanks everyone, Joe
