The New Jersey Pinelands
The Pinelands National Reserve is the United States first national reserve. In addition, the region is a UNESCO United States Biosphere Reserve and an International Biosphere Reserve.
The Pinelands of New Jersey is a globally significant area for flora and fauna, while geographically, it is a forest of and by the sea. Offered here are photographic portraits of flora and fauna, landscapes, water reflections, atmospheric effects, and old structures that remain of the history of lives lived in the Pine Barrens-the name the locals gave the region. This is an evolving collection with the New Jersey Pinelands as an endless source of artistic inspiration.
Everyone has a story. In telling these stories, people live on. Saving bits of flotsam and jetsam in our lives also has threads of tales woven in.
Vintage LBI is a reflection on times past. Objects that evoke memories of life lived on Long Beach Island New Jersey in the 20th century. A combination of making due and treasure hunting. Hand craftsmanship and the tools that enabled the maker to realize the idea. Finds from the attic, shed, and home composed and photographed with an eye to telling a story.
