I discovered Howard Bond’s work in 1979. At the time I was shooting an old Zeiss Icon 2 ¼ camera and Ansel Adams was my photo hero. Except that I was in an office building in Ann Arbor Michigan, I don’t remember any other the details of that day except that my eyes fell upon the most magnificent photo of the Huron River. My heart said Ansel Adams but my brain quickly corrected me. I wrote down Howard Bond and started my pursuit to find out more about this brilliant photographer. Mr. Bond’s work was already well known in Ann Arbor. It only took viewing a few more of his fine art photographs to produce the burning desire to get back into a darkroom and really learn the craft of printing my own work.

I attended a few photo workshops at the University of Michigan and the burning desire flamed into passion to learn. In 1980 I enrolled at the local community college and took all the darkroom and large camera format classes they offered. I was also privileged to attend a couple of Howard Bond workshops. It was wonderful last evening to attend an opening reception for Mr. Bond in Chelsea, Michigan. Along with collectors of his work, the gallery was filled with photographers that also had great stories about the Bond influence on their work.
