This month’s cover features “Pattern Seekers #1: Select-O-View” from the Dan Powell Fine Art Photograph Collection, in the University of Oregon (OU) Libraries Special Collections and University Archives (libweb.uoregon.edu/speccoll/photo/fPowell.html). Powell is a widely exhibited fine art photographer and coordinates the photography program in the OU Department of Art.

“The hand-colored photographs in the Pattern Seekers were created from 1980 to 1982,” notes Powell. “Rather than photographing the world around me, I was interested in layering information (forms, patterns, markings, fragments of images and words) through which a mix of languages and signs would be created; a cross fertilization of symbols and meanings.” © Dan Powell.
