Micaëla Gallery, San Francisco, "Larry Keenan," September 6 - 30, 2006.

This is a black and white photograph of a man standing in the middle of a landscape showing sunlight's reflection across the rippled surface of mudflats. The man appears in silhouette standing in the distance about two-thirds up in the composition near the horizon line. Multiple clouds appear in the sky above.

Micaëla Gallery printout:"DESIDERATA / Alameda 1964 / The kind of photography I started doing in art school was man & nature images. While driving along the South Shore beach, I saw the shadow on the mudflats. When we stopped, I asked my brother Bob to walk out and stand in the center of the dry area. I photographed him using a new wide-angle lens I had just gotten for Christmas from my parents. A couple of years later the photo was published as the very popular 'Desiderata' poster."
