For me, photography is a passion, my conduit for self-expression. My camera is my canvas, my notebook.
Having long suffered from wanderlust and curiosity about other cultures, other countries, photography is my excuse to wander. I travel to find and make photographs and, conversely, making photographs is my rationalization to travel. My passions are satisfied. Not surprisingly then, most of my images are of people of diverse cultures being themselves, in their own environment. In addition, making images of the wonderful landscapes that surround us, especially in the American west as well as my home state of Florida are of profound interest.
Learning to see, not just look, is critical to making any type of visual art, and especially photography. When making a photograph I endeavor to visualize the final image as a print. My years as a professional sculptor, in a previous life, was vital to learning to see, to visualize. I would create the entire sculpture in my mind’s eye before putting chisel to wood. As I explore Still Life photography I rely on my gift of visualization as much as ever.
I am pleased that my work has been recognized in several national and international competitions. My photography has been featured in numerous magazine and newspaper articles. Additionally, my work has been published in seven books, including “The Streets of Paris”, featuring 148 of my Paris street scenes.
