Photography projects are a way for photographers to express an idea or a story in a series of photographs. There are no rules, per se, as to how many photographs, or how they're arranged. Sometimes they are just photographs, sometimes text accompanies the photographs.


In 2019 I was selected to participate in the Veterans Workshop Series, put on by the Colorado Photographic Arts Center (CPAC). The Series included several months of training courses with the goal being to create a photography project, which would include a gallery presentation at CPAC.

I chose to do a project on beetle kill in Colorado, since it is so prevelant. I called the project Transformation as a metaphor for what veterans go through. With the radical transforation that the beetle does to the trees, ultimately, though, there is good that comes from this in that organizations take these trees, recycle them, and create furniture, as well as a number of other products. I likened this to the transformation of veterans as they transition from the military back to civilian life.

In the summer of 2021 I was diagnosed with a medical condition that required a serious surgery. I decided that I would document my recovery with another photography project.

My plan is to use exercise and outdoor activities towards that recovery. I chose the name Duathlon as my goal is to start working from nothing in the fall of 2021 and then take part in a running event in early 2022, a biking event in the summer of 2022, and, hopefully, complete a significant hiking/climbing event in the fall of 2022.

There is much to coordinate and plan for this. I'll post some pictures here as I continue with the project, which will be long term and include many more photos than my Transformation project.
