For the past several months I’ve been very lucky to have the opportunities to do some collaborative work with my longtime friend and artist Terrance Graven. Recently we were invited, by Catherine Tullner, to ‘Wild Gardens’, a beautiful and historic Victorian farmhouse outside of Petaluma CA.
We began the afternoon photographing the mansion from the outside, essentially recreating the look from a vintage photograph that had been taken of the original family and builders of the home. Both Terrance and I however, had our eyes on the old wooden barn on the property, and there was no keeping us out of there. It was a late afternoon sun on the ramshackle building and the years of use had given it so much character. It provided a wonderful backdrop for this series.
