Rick Dingus in this online exhibition on Luminous-Lint explores the nature of place as he describes in his introduction.

"I photograph places that interest me because they contain details that pose questions related to a broadly defined notion of "Landscape." I'm interested in any situation that prompts contemplation of the curiously complex connections we share with the larger patterns of existence. Remote wilderness and rural settings, vernacular byways, urban environments, ancient pathways, ruins, historic, mythic and spiritual pilgrimage sites, scientific and technological research facilities, folk and professional museums, shrines, collections, displays, and dioramas all fascinate me because these places reflect individual and collective responses, understandings, and a myriad of relationships to the same world I live in. I've shifted frames of reference continually, seeking new insights that might be hidden behind the details that are in plain view."

Thanks to Rick Dingus for his enthusiasm and assistance with this exhibition.

There is an online exhibition on Luminous-Lint.
