Since 2001, when I acquired my first digital camera (I'm now on my third, a Sony DSLR), I have taken literally thousands of digital photos of Fair Park.

I've turned some of my Fair Park photos into attractive posters, suitable for framing, which can be purchased online at CafePress.

I'm always happy to discuss terms for the publication rights to any of the photos featured on this website. Please direct all inquiries to texian1846@yahoo.com.

In 2009 some of my Fair Park photos were chosen for inclusion in When Art Worked: The New Deal, Art, and Democracy by Roger G. Kennedy, former director of the National Park Service and director emeritus of the National Museum of American History. When Art Worked (Rizzoli: 2009) can be purchased online at Amazon.com.

Some of my Fair Park photos were also published inside and on the back cover (see photo, left) of the Fall 2011 issue of Legacies: A History Journal for Dallas and North Central Texas--as illustrations for my article, "A Tale of Two Artists," a dual biography of Raoul Josset and Jose Martin, French sculptors who created much of the art that still graces Fair Park today.
