I began this project in about 1990. Quite simply, it had to do with the Columbia River from the standpoints of Recreation, Transportation, Water (Hydroelectric), Fishing and the Extraction of Resources. I approached it from a Documentary standpoint, relatively neutral, but with a decided bend toward my choices having to do with subject matter. These photographs were made over an extended period and usually were 4 x 5 inch negatives scanned to the computer. I have treated the images with a computer program (Lightroom), but until now I haven't shown them.
