Featured Photo

Untitled (Leaves, Ferns, Hawaii), c. 1980


Ferns were the perfect subject of satisfy Brett’s search for pattern.  He looked for it in everything from dunes to rocks to buildings.  The placement of the leaves divide the composition naturally into thirds with the highlight on the middle frond.  It is a beautiful photograph made near the end of Brett’s career, emphasizing the fact that his eye never waivered.
