About

Signed, titled, and dated. Paper size: 32 x 40 in. Frame is included, frame size: 41 x 50 x 1 1/2 in. "At least twice a year, Ridley ventures to Big Bend with his 8 x 10 view camera capturing stunning, expansive black and white images of the Rio Grande River, including the Chisos Mountain range, Dog Canyon, Emory Peak, Pine Canyon, Cattail Falls, and Punta de la Sierra. He prefers the “nuances of texture and tone” that black and white photography lends. Ridley states, “The absence of color demands that the qualities of illumination and tone produce the emotional response instead of a response to color alone.” His 8 x 10 view camera offers almost infinite, sweeping detail and depth of field of the landscape, more than the human eye is capable of seeing. Jack Ridley’s choice of the 8 x 10 camera follows the tradition of the 19th Century photographers who documented the American West, including Carlton Watkins, Timothy O’Sullivan, and Eadweard Muybridge. They carried large, cumbersome view cameras, glass plates and equipment on horse-drawn wagons, developing their work on location. Due to modern technology, Ridley’s expeditions of Big Bend are not quite as challenging. His choice of camera confirms his demand for the same quality of the 19th Century masters before him. Ridley’s photographs address Big Bend’s sublime grandeur. Other great vistas exist in National Parks throughout the west, but this is one of Texas’ most treasured attractions."
