On the summer solstice 2017 I had the privilege of photographing the largest mineral collection to size in the world.

Privately owned by Richard Berger Masterpieces of the Earth Collection  is an extraordinary, mind-blowing experience of ancient elemental elders of our planet.
Living emanating beings of form. These often car sized crystal specimens included the Fontainebleau Concretions. These stunning pieces of ancient crystalline sand, water and alchemical forces of nature are some of the worlds most fascinating natural formations.

This spring I will have my first public viewing of my photographs from my visit of the Masterpieces of Earth Collection.

“Formation” will be on display at the 41st Photography Regional at Collar City Gallery in Troy New York, guest curated by Kathleen Vance and Daniel Aycock directors of Front Room Gallery in NYC.

I promised to release my images and donate 100% of the sales to helping the manifestation of Richard’s vision of a Masterpieces of the Earth Museum. So these beings of immense consciousness can be experienced by everyone. Contact Collar Works Gallery for purchase instructions & pricing.

Hidden away in an undisclosed location are these incredible beings of force and form. My experience of them was unique and powerful. My hope was to capture their intrigue, sound and spirit in my images.
