Latest work: "Kyoto Wall"

One of the first photos I took in Japan was (and this will sound weird unless you know me) of some tape that had been partially torn off a metal door. I knew that it would be good in a photomontage. So that was the basis of this picture.

I then photographed various antique Japanese book pages and covers, added more papers when I arrived home, and here we are. I like the warm tones, the feeling of depth, the solid structure of the composition, and the sense of mystery.
