Cloud Cap/Mt. St. Helens
TitleCloud Cap/Mt. St. Helens
Artwork DescriptionA black and white photograph of a mountain landscape in formidable weather. Snowcaps can be seen, and there are clouds in the background. There is contrast in the enveloping clouds as they blanket the sharp mountain peaks.
Artist StatementThese portraits were my most rewarding images of the trip. I have continued my portrait work, it provides a balnace to my landscape photographs. That is what I love about travel photography, it leads me into new ways of seeing. it stretches me out and helps me grow as a human being, and as I learn more about other cultures I learn more about myself and the people I photograph. (Vliek, 1999)
