Photo Of The Day: Chinatown Squares

A couple of weeks ago I decided to take another walk around Chinatown with my camera. San Francisco’s Chinatown is not that big of a neighborhood, and many of the day-to-day scenes are similar if not downright the same. Once you’ve photographed Chinatown a few times, the images get fairly repetitious. But then, that’s where […]

Exploring Yosemite In Black And White

Ansel Adams was on to something when he shot so many of his Yosemite images in black and white. It seems the landscape in the High Sierras was created for black and white photography.

I have never traveled because someone tried to sell me a destination. I’ve chosen my destinations to travel to because someone told me a good story or tall tale about their experience there, or they showed me a few of their magical and personal photographs. I’m attracted to a place because it’s an important contemporary art center or historical in some art or cultural or archaeological or spiritual way and often the experience of being in a landscape also inspires me while the deeper mystery of a destination is what pulls me there.

That’s what I try to share with my readers of this site.

Artists, Writers, Photographers, Musicians, Performers, Creatives … it’s probably our intense curiosity about life that drives us to move about on the planet. Our need to experience the revitalization of Self attracts the artist in us to the road or the rail or the skies. In a way, traveling is very similar to the creation process – both are taking a leap into the unknown.

Within our travels we find the discovery of a new place, a new language, a new taste, a new way of seeing, or find new work methods that will ultimately, profoundly affect our work.

ARTIST-AT-LARGE is here to inspire and encourage you to open the door and step out into an unknown world – to transform – even if it is only by experiencing your own neighborhood.

The focus here is first and foremost selling images, but it’s also on presenting cultural travel writing and photography, bringing together travelers and photographers, and when we aren’t traveling we share our everyday lives, studio work and musings, as well our cultural walkabouts around our homelands.
