Latest work: "So Long, Pete Turner"


When I was a little photographer, Pete Turner’s work was so exciting. And the picture below, of the trash can, was what drew me in. So colorful. So clean. So simple. His images were what I wanted to emulate. He passed away last week. But his work, his colors, live on in my head.

I was creating this top picture when I learned of Turner's death. So I saturated the heck out of it! So long, Pete Turner.
