We've been photographing the changing landscape and architecture of Schoharie County in upstate New York for more than twenty years using a 4X5 view camera.

The images have been published by WW Norton & Co. in a book entitled: TIME WEARING OUT MEMORY, SCHOHARIE COUNTY with an introduction by Jeffrey Lent, author of  In the Fall and Lost Nation.

"Without a trace of easy nostalgia, these sharp-edged photographs arrest the eye and reawaken the human fascination with architecture, landscape, history, and the forces of decay."
-Billy Collins, two termed U.S. Poet Laureate

The Book

The filmmaker Ken Burns has commented on these photos, saying:
"In these wonderful images can be found the soul of a nation, a legacy that is fast disappearing in the face of the developers' relentless march. In this vernacular inventory, so beautifully rendered, is also our future".
