From the beginning, I was struck by the potential for luminosity, darkness and magic in that raw Teton landscape. Friendly and unfriendly, it was a phenomenon which lent itself to myth - like observing the moon from Earth. Storms would roll through the valley in the summer afternoons and the clouds would huddle around the mountains as though a part of some private meeting of pagan deities. All of the activity around those mountains fueled my imagination and curiosity.
The original image was created on an outing with the Asymbol Team in August 2015 as a 4x5in, clear-glass ambrotype. En route to an adventure on Jackson Lake, we brought my collodion equipment and made this exposure. The day itself was a throw back to the innocence and playfulness of when I first lived in Jackson: swimming in lakes, laughing like crazy, endless youth on an endless day.
