  • Dennis Moler

    I've been taking pictures for over 40 years, starting with film (most formats) and darkroom work to develop and print images. For the last 10 years I've been working with digital cameras, but I still regard taking a picture as only the beginning of a process. I'm interested in landscapes, both urban and rural, that imply a human presence without necessarily showing one. I think we impinge on our surroundings and our surroundings return the favor. I sometimes use infrared film or, lately, digital cameras that have been modified to record the infrared spectrum as a way of pointing beyond what our eyes can literally see. I'II try to keep a beginner's mind.
