Welcome to my online Gallery, with over one hundred images in the fourteen portfolios and many pages of supplementary information of various kinds.

Please visit my News page for current topics of interest, including information on the excellent new EPSON printers and inkset that I am now using to make the best color prints that I've ever made. Also visit the Exhibitions page to learn about the two shows I've got coming up, May through July, 2005.

For information about the imaging workshops that I teach, visit the Workshops page. Consultation and one-on-one tutoring are also available.

To learn about my RGB working space profiles and their special chroma-adjusting variant profiles, go to the Profiles page, where you can download the Ekta Space PS 5, J. Holmes profile and the latest Working Spaces Read Me PDF.

Complete information about ordering fine prints is on the Orders page. You can order from me or from one of the fine galleries or art consultants who represent me. A discussion of the methods I use to make photographs is on the Processes page.

Before visiting the Gallery, I would encourage a quick stop at the Viewing Tips page to see whether your browser and computer are showing Web content too light, too dark or just right.

After thirty-seven years of hard work at photography dedicated to expressing the beauty of nature, and thirty years spent in the pursuit of perfection in color photographic print making, it has recently become both possible and practical to make original color photographic prints of superb quality, which are highly reflective of my artistic intent, and which are also several times more permanent on display than all traditional color prints, including Ilfochrome and the best chromogenic processes.

Color photography is coming of age as an art form, making it feasible for photographers to rival the finest painting and exceed the standards set by the finest traditional black & white photography, thanks in large part to stunning advances in the many technologies of modern imaging. The many destructive vagueries, flavors and limitations of chemical processes need no longer impose themselves onto one's photographs. The intelligence and flexibility of digital processes have begun to make it possible to reveal both the truth of a scene and one's artistic intent far better than ever before. I remain dedicated to the task of realizing in every way the quality and scope of work which the new methods have made possible.

Thank you for visiting.
