A Perfect Shot


12 x 12 inch screenprint. Inspired by my photographer father and his love of Ansel Adams . The idea of these legends in photography like Adams, Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks and the rest lugging all the equipment to the perfect mountaintop, farmstead, living room, protest; it is amazing to consider in our age of convenience and miniaturized ubiquitous camera phones. So this is for that old idea of the right place, the right time.  

Signed and numbered edition on French Paper Co stock

Outside is America (Blue sky edition)



I recently had the pleasure of making a private print for U2 and their crew when they performed at the Rogers Centre in Toronto as part of the Joshua Tree 30th Anniversary tour.  When I was asked to make a poster, I immediately thought of the trip my family and I took to Joshua Tree National Park in February.  It is a place filled with unspoiled beauty that truly is difficult to describe, you just really, really need to go and spend time there.

I took a lot of reference photos for future prints I wanted to work on while hiking in Joshua Tree.  The image in this print is from a photo I took close to dusk in the park.  I had the line from "Bullet the Blue Sky" off of the U2 album in my head a lot that day- "Outside is America", a line you can use isolated in so many different ways.  It inspired the photo and the print, and , little did I know then, a gift for the band!

What you see here is an art print edition of the image I used for the poster, sans words and venue information.   Printed in 3 layers, signed and numbered edition of 200, 18 x 24 inches.  These are available now in the shop.
