"Geoff Baker’s landscapes of northeastern Ohio and northwestern Michigan expand our understanding of what Henri Cartier-Bresson called his quest for 'the decisive moment ... Baker's world is decidedly American, continuous with the "sublime" in the 19th century vistas of Bierstadt and Church, the humility of Thoreau and Melville, the transcendentalism of Emerson.
A former executive at Republic Steel, he belongs to the American tradition of businessmen/artists exemplified by the composer Charles Ives and the poet Wallace Stevens. Like those two connoisseurs of American splendor, he has remained loyal to a homegrown passion, his adolescent pursuit of photography. Cartier-Bresson's restless, chance encounters have the charm of discovery. Baker's landscapes offer another satisfaction - that of a photographer who has spent a lifetime revisiting the scenes that enchanted him as a child.
If Cartier-Bresson's great subject was form, Baker's is light - most often, first light ... His palette is dynamic, an emerging one of blacks and grays as they turn into whites, greens, browns, yellows, mauves, oranges and blues - the mottled hues of shadowy things taking shape in the dawn of a new day." Charles Michener, former Senior Editor, Cultural Affairs, The New Yorker and Newsweek magazines.
