Artist Bio: 

           

            Photography in Ireland was my first work, a place called "Ardoyne", a housing

estate on a hillside in north Belfast.  Street scenes, the friends I made, mostly children, 1971-1972.

            I started taking pictures at the Congdon sawmill shortly after returning from Ireland and have continued photographing there ever since.  Central to the collection are the portraits of the woodsman, Amos Congdon, a man who I thought of as the spirit of the trees.

            For the last 10 years I've taken pictures of the games, players, and fans at a summer basketball tournament in Middletown, CT.

Project Description:

           

         In 1995 I started taking pictures of a log truck left to rust and fall apart at the

 edge  of the Congdon's mill lot.  Using 35 mm color film, a Nikon N-90 on a tripod.

Different seasons of the year, all times of day.  Originally it had been a 2.5 ton US

Army truck, built by Kaizer Jeep between 1962-1964 with a multifuel 146 hp engine. 

(Multifuel, meaning the engine is built to run on many different types of fuel.)  Joking,

the Sawyer says there were tadpoles in the gas tank when he bought it and still it

started up.
