My friend Harlan Nelson has published his first book, titled, Traces of a Culture.
Harlan is originally from North Dakota, and after retiring in 1998 he began photographing the area in which he had grown up. The book also contains historical facts and interviews with residents and their descendants. Harlan has shown many of these photos at our Imageworks meetings, usually with "colorful" commentary about the people from this rugged area of the country.
The 440 page book is available on blurb.com and is available in both softcover and hardcover.
Richard Coda has been photographing since he was a teenager. In college he fell in love with images made with large format cameras. Starting with a 4x5" view camera, he soon moved up to an 8x10" camera and, most recently, has begun working with an 11x14" camera.
While he photographed landscapes early in his career, recently his work has focused on that which has been overlooked, forgotten, or looked at, but not seen. He finds compositions where others see the ordinary, or nothing at all. While concentrating on black and white for most of his career, Richard has found a new love for color, using color as the subject, while still retaining his classical aesthetic for form, line and tone.
