The uneasy coexistence between human populations and the natural world interests me as a photographer. I lived for many years in coastal southern New Jersey, where I was drawn aesthetically to the ordered pilings, decaying buildings and piers, dune fences, structural debris, and kitsch of my seaside town. Deeply influenced by Michael Kenna's work, I came to favor long exposures in low light as I examined the interaction between wind, waves, salt, and the human footprint. I recently relocated to the San Francisco Bay area, where I look forward to exploring my new environment. I am particularly intrigued by the ambiguous quality of everyday objects encountered at the water's edge between twilight and dawn, and the tension between the elements and human expectations of permanence and control. I have come to think of the images as 'melancholigraphs'.
Open edition color and monochrome prints and other products are offered through Fine Art America and Society 6 (http://society6.com/gagrons).
Patrons interested in owning a signed limited edition print are invited to visit http://www.agrons.com. I have been very pleased with the ethereal look of monochrome archival ink jet prints made using Bizan, a traditional Japanese Washi individually handmade at the Awagami mill in Tokushima. The paper is made from environmentally friendly Kozo (mulberry) and Hemp fibers, yielding naturally deckled edges and a unique texture. If you would like to purchase a signed and numbered print (limited to an edition of 25 and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity), please contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org (or select 'Get a Quote' while viewing an image on my website at http://www.agrons.com) for options and pricing.
Some images may be appropriate for hand-made platinum-palladium contact prints. This process, sometimes referred to as platinum or platinum-palladium printing, yields a soft ethereal image with a wide tonal range in the highlights. Because the platinum or palladium precipitates within the substance of the paper, the prints are truly archival. These 8' x 10' prints are limited to editions of only 10, and are archivally matted to 16' x 20'.
Thank you for visiting this site. I hope you enjoy the photographs.
