These portraits are part of a new series, inspired by Wheeler’s Photographic survey of the American West. From 1871-1873, George M Wheeler led an expedition to create topographic maps in the western states. He took with him two photographers, Timothy O’Sullivan and William Bell, to document the journey. For me, these landscape photos are inspirational launching points for portraits. The image above portrays naturalist John Muir, who was considered “Father of the National Parks”. Stay tuned, I’ll be posting more portraits soon! You can check out more personal projects at my new site!
