Art based on a photo by George Uveges of Richard Miller flying his Bamboo Butterfly in 1967

Richard Miller flying his Bamboo Butterfly in 1967. Photo by George Uveges.

Most of the images on the early hang gliding pages are my artistic derivations of contemporary photos by a small number of photographers. Their efforts and skill at using film cameras in the second half of the 20th century averted the risk of this history being solely one of hearsay, text, and drawings.

However, those photographs do not belong to me. Using a hand-held camera, I photographed the pages of the printed publications in which they appear. (I have a tripod and even a flat-bed scanner, but I used neither.) I then added an effect that makes the resulting images look as though they are printed on textured material, which to some extent they were.
