I have selected 21 pieces of works from the photographs I created in the last 40 years. Soon after graduating from collage in California, 40 years ago, I was attracted to the beauty of Yosemite in Sierra Nevada. In my 40s, I often visited Central Park in New York to take photographs. After moving to Santa Fe, New Mexico, from New York, 13 years ago, desert scenes in the South West became the subjects I focused. In the past three years, I have frequently visited Oregon and California. Through the process of work selection for this show, it became clear to me that my photography had been moving towards QUEST FOR BEAUTY. For me, expression in photography is similar to musicians playing music with their instruments. What is the music I want to play next; how do I want to play it? In which direction is the quest of beauty heading?
