The images here are small thumbnails for efficient web viewing, but the final prints are produced from large, high-resolution digital files without the watermark. I work with a custom print lab that hand produces and reviews each print individually before sending it to you. Each print comes with a signed Certificate of Authenticity.
All images are printed on Hahnemuhle Rag Baryta, a cotton based paper with a smooth semigloss finish and natural color base, free of optical whiteners for increased longevity. It is acid-free and lignin-free and meets the most exacting archival requirements. This is high quality paper and should last a lifetime if cared for properly.
I truly appreciate that you like my pictures and want to support my work. If for any reason you’re not happy with your print when you receive it, please contact me immediately to resolve any issue. Please read my Terms and Conditions page for complete details.
Glines Canyon Dam, Olympic National Park, Washington State, 1987, and the 80′ crack I painted on one wild night that September. After barely escaping at dawn, I scrubbed myself clean of all paint and drove back to snap this photo. It appeared in the Seattle Times and went out on the UPI wire.
Little did I know that it would help turn the tide toward removing the dam a quarter century later. Glines Canyon Dam and the Lower Elwha Dam downstream are now gone, removed in 2014 in what at the time was the largest, most ambitious dam removal in U.S. history. The river’s swift recovery and the return of its abundant salmon is an incredible story of resilience that shows the power of nature to heal once we get out of the way. I tell the entire story of that night’s adventure during an interview in the 2014 documentary DamNation, widely available online.
Each print comes with a personally signed Certificate of Authenticity and a signed photocopy of the original statement that I sent anonymously to the press the morning after the “cracking”.
