On the Cover: May 2022

This month’s cover photograph is by Rick Graves of Spring Green.

While wandering around L & M Salvage on Highway Y in Richland Center, Rick came across this “beatle in the bush.” Rick says, “I especially liked the way the light is coming through the windshield and the open door, inviting you to come along for a ride through the woods. And what happened to the steering wheel?”

Rick learned photography from his father, a World War II Navy photographer, in the 1960s and has been clicking away ever since. Rick made the switch to digital photography years ago but, with a background in old-school film photography, he presents his work with little manipulation of the digital image.

Rick and his wife, Joni, a bookmaker, own aBoBoBook. Many thanks to Rick for his contribution to this month’s magazine! To enjoy more of his and Joni’s work, see abobobook.com, follow aBoBoBook on Instragram and look for their booth at the Spring Green Art Fair.
