Bruce Patterson -

          "I bought my first camera when my first son was born in 1978. Neither he nor his kid brother enjoyed getting their pictures took so, over time, more and more I turned my lense on landscapes and pioneer relics. I became fascinated with the interplays of shape, light and shadow. Because for over thirty years I worked outdoors across the length and breadth of Anderson Valley, and since I usually kept my camera in my truck, every once in a while I'd get lucky and capture an image worth showing. Also, given the changes the valley has gone through during that time, I caught a number of scenes that no longer exist."
