Working with a 4×5 view camera and black and white film, Jeff’s interest is in the way light plays off the landscape and buildings that are scattered across the Italian Peninsula. He regularly exhibits his work, having had 3 exhibitions across the country in the past year. A seven-image series was purchased by the Weeks Gallery in Jamestown, New York this past summer.

in May of 2005, LensWork magazine published a 20-image portfolio, Bella Luce. Now, Jeff has been asked to participate in LensWork’s Folio series. The beautifully-produced Evidence of Hands on Stone” folio can be thought of  as a hybrid between an individual print and a book. It’s a collection of  10 unbound prints –  book-size rather than wall-size prints.

“I’m very excited to have been asked to publish my work in this way,” Jeff says. “LensWork has produced a really beautiful package that I’m very proud of.” Speaking about the images and their subjects, Jeff says, “These objects are the evidence of patient application of hands on stone, allowing extraordinary things to be created from ordinary materials. Over time, layers of the past and present combine to create something that will remain to be seen in the future.”
