"Sun Down To Sun Up In The Eastern Sierra" Is a series of medium format color film work that travels through sunset, dusk, night, dawn and sunrise in Californias Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains. Comprised of images ranging from 30 second exposures up to two hours, this series has taught me a lot about patience, mistakes & adjustments, and the importance letting go to better appreciate the non-immeadiacy, and most significantly to me, the unknown. I view this series as collaborative with my surroundings and foster a deep appreciation for the authenticity of the scenes photographed.
