I have kept handwritten journals since the 8th grade and that tactile pen & paper experience has been very useful and fulfilling for me over the years. It’s unlikely that this jounal-space would ever replace the pen & paper for me, but I do see this an experimental space to share some sideways glances and some possible behind-the-scenes windows into my photographic process, inspirations and adventures. It also gives me a place to begin introducing an exciting new photographic endeavor entitled the “The Portrait Project“.

In many ways I have resisted expanding beyond the boundaries of my traditional website. But my hope is that I will develop a new passion for expression within this format, and that possibly it will give me a place beyond the folds of my handwritten journal pages to share a thought or two as time rolls on.

Thank you for exploring here.  ~ Rick Chapman
