Photojournalist Earl Dotter paid a visit to the Southern Ute Drum production room following our lead story on the Solix Biofuels dedication which took place here on the Southern Ute Reservation.
Earl has led a dedicated career in photojournalism with an emphasis on labor issues and I strongly encourage
you visit his website EarlDotter.com
to see his work firsthand and learn more about his direction as a journalist.
In line with his current project, Earl made a portrait of yours truly, holding our Solix
cover story- Hot off the Press! The background images you might recognize as being the works of Chris Johns
and David Alan Harvey
clipped from the National Geographic Magazine and pinned up as a source of visual inspiration!
Where does your own inspiration come from? Do you find yourself looking to other photographers, painters to fuel your creative journey, or do set out to create entirely original work, unbiased and unaffected, or is this even possible in a world flooded with imagery?
And if so, which photographers have been influential to you, your style, your direction? Who inspires you!
Here’s to Earl and here’s to Inspiration!
