James Paschal Cecil Jr.


Artist's Statement
Jim photographs the tension found in nature. He composes his work on the areas where subtlety of form meets nature's wildness. Jim has been photographing the high country, back country and ocean shores of the Pacific Northwest for more than 20 years.

All Black & White and Cibachrome work is hand printed using traditional darkroom techniques which include split toning, bleaching and contrast masks to bring out the natural beauty of the Northwest landscape. Photographic influences include David Fokos and Christopher Burkett.
