Books Available by Axel


Iridescent Light - The Art of Stand Development” is the first and only book dedicated the the techniques, tools, and tips to get you started with stand development. This technique gives you long tonal ranges in your black and white work, and the process is very easy and simple. All you need to know is what tools, film, and developers to use.

You can purchase ”Iridescent Light” at Blurb.com.


Winters Chant” is Axel’s first book of his photography, and not about photography. This beautifully photographed and processed book of color images is his first book of color images. As a child, Axel photographed and wandered about the Winter landscape of his home near Portland, Oregon. He saw beautiful, rich colors, not the starkness so many see. In this book, he captures his world around the Deschutes River and Forest of Central Oregon. Interspersed among the photos are related prayers, chants, and other spiritual writings related to Winter.

You can purchase ”Winters Chant” at Blurb.com.
