This current show “Timeless” was inspired as Doug was driving down at dirt road. He passed an abandoned property and noticed an old brass bed frame leaning up against an old shed. “ It looked like it had been there for years and one word came to mind, Timeless. Later that day I looked up the meaning of the word and the definition was ‘Without beginning or end; eternal; everlasting’.”
Doug Yeager, who has been honored to receive accolades in the past couple of years at the Taos Fall Arts Open, has always felt nature is sacred.
“I love to photograph oak trees, flowers, fields and reflections in windows. When I take photos of these things I feel a connection to the past, to things that have been lost and forgotten. I am attracted to trees that have lost their leaves, a barren field, an abandon adobe dwelling.” Yeager loves old photographs and has been collecting them his entire life. In his printing process he has tried to capture the essence of an old photograph. When printing in sepia tone and diffusing his images, his goal is to capture the feeling of those old photographs of our past the past.
