    Photography Collection/Sasse Museum

    Photographs from the Sasse Museum collection have been published as an e-book. There is a short introduction and historical perspective.

    That’s a wonderful ice photo. What was the actual size of the section in the photo?

    There are incredible photographs and photographers included. The fact that your excellent photography warrants the cover, as it does, speaks volumes. Congratulations! We are lucky to have your expertise and insight so generously given.

    Most welcome Pieter. An eclectic collection for sure!

    Edward Weston with his 8x10 (pgs. 44-45) resulted in this photograph of Paul Ivano in his Bugatti. (For those seeking trivia, Paul is using a Leica)

    Roger and Philip, thank you.

    There is a story as to how I became involved in this. The museum director, Gene Sasse had been gifted a large number of photographs, among them some of mine and some by my father. I volunteered to sort out what I could, having lived a bit of the history relative to many of the photographs. It is a work in progress.

    A couple of years ago, Gene invited me to participate in an exhibition with a nature theme, and chose a print of what is currently on the cover of the collection e-book. Perhaps as a thank you, but I appreciate the opportunity to share what I know of the history of West Coast photography.
