"Some twenty years ago my wife, Maia, made a series of 35mm color transparencies as I was finishing a late evening shoot on the beach in France. Once developed, these pictures were a startling reminder of how the adaptive tendencies of the human eye blind us to the true nature of altered light. In fact, the low angle evening light that I had so come to prefer in France was even richer and warmer than I’d been able to see. Her pictures kindled a small but persistent annual effort in color—rarely more than fifty or a hundred 8x10 transparencies a year. My favorites were always those that somehow surprised the eye with the richness or improbability of their palate. Ten are assembled here for you in a small portfolio. While my work has always been best understood as a reverence to the identities depicted, here that reverence extends as well to the surprising truth of the light itself."-Jock Sturges.
