Genesis, A Photographic Essay

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth . . ."

The book of Genesis provides the basis for a beautiful story of when the earth was new. The Genesis Photographic Essay presented here is based on the King James version of the Bible, Genesis 1:1-2:3. This essay has been an ongoing project of Ted's since 1968. At that time Ted presented an essay consisting of 7 photographs as a high school project in a contemporary arts class. Sadly, the original essay has long ago vanished. Photographs in this book are the result of years of photography, taken between 1972 and 2018.
