Congratulations Maris

For some reason we do not see much of Maris on the forum these days, but he has just had a portfolio published in on-line photography magazine f11

Here is the link:

Well deserved and well done mate,

Thanks for your kind and encouraging words. And you are right, I've been quiet but I plead photographic necessity:

Six weeks of blizzards, snow, and ice, in the high country with a 4x5 camera.
Days and days of darkroom work turning exposures into negatives.
The f11 thing; lots of text, lots of editing, lots of emails all done to a deadline.
Three weeks off with something like the 'flu.
Days with Gordon Undy, the director of Point Light Gallery, as he de-accessions the Maris collection. I've got all my physical photo stock back in handsome gallery cases. Meanwhile virtual pictures, er scans, still hunt for sales online.
Over one hundred negatives in the backlog while my partner has taken over the darkroom, enlargers, trays, sink, everything, for days. And fills it overnight with drying racks and her gelatin-silvers. This could go on for some time.

Here's a picture to decorate (?) some Community Chat:

It's nice to get a glimpse into your catalogue of work, Maris. I especially liked the Cook's Monument photo. Reminds me of Bill Brandt's work.
