"One should really use the camera as though tomorrow you'd be stricken blind."  - Dorothea Lange


Enjoy PHOTO EPHEMERA. It is the result of thousands of miles of searching with the camera over many years.

As a designer, photographer and adventurer I have always been curious and worked very hard at learning as much about my world as I could. Sometimes it was a matter of learning to survive and manage risk in the mountains. Sometimes it was purely a desire to improve the community or a sport that I was passionate about. in one case designing useful new items such as ski boots or practical environmental designs for the towns I live near in Colorado. And sometimes is was just about finding out who I am and what is important in the world through photography during explorations. I hope you enjoy my vision of the world here. It is like geology, it is dynamic but always changing and constantly revealing the deeper truths from which we came.  -Art


"In photography there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality."  - Alfred Stieglitz

My role in Ajax Design & Communications

For more than 30 years I have been creating as much functional value in design as I can within my company Ajax Design, whether it has been improving public knowledge of important western water issues within the the Colorado River Basin, bringing the extraordinary world of big mountain exploration via books like 50 CLASSIC SKI DESCENTS OF NORTH AMERICA or developing Scarpa T1 and T2 ski boots or designing and building civic environmental designs that thousands of users enjoy and use every day. Ajax Design has been the cornerstone to constant development of useful and compelling designs and hopefully a great source of enjoyment for all those who have enjoyed or used these great products. I am committed to producing as much or more during the next 20 years if nature provides good health and more great design challenges. Art and Innovative Design improve the world greatly.
