This Rock Face series of photographs addresses a sense of presence and personality. Each mountain portrait pictured here has its own unique characteristics. Just as with portraits of people, the texture and surface of each rock face was produced over time by gradual, intense experience.
Each of these faces are several hundred feet tall. Find the trees for scale. Their lifetimes are profoundly long. All of these photos were taken in Yosemite within miles of each other, yet each place reacted differently to the same conditions. Each looks different as the light hits it throughout the day and throughout the year. Each is a landmark.
