  • Tad McKinley

    Wow, these are great.

    • I am fortunate enough to own a Divola print from one of his desert dusk series. The light is essentially monochromatic with two intense rectangles of light coming from the windows of a small shack. If you can find the series, take a look – they are wonderful. Also, take a look at my work if you get the chance – it’s always good to get feedback.
