Seeing has been an important part of my relation to the world since I was a teenager and interested in painting and drawing. My first bout with photography was in the mid-1970s when I was in college and managed a student darkroom for a time.
After many years of mostly family photography, with only occasional and half-hearted forays into artistic areas, I have begun to explore creating images in a serious way. My view of this is that the world is a mysterious place and that the role of art is to try to make sense of it. There is a lot of beauty, but there is a also lot that is out of kilter. Capturing some of this tension is what I am looking to accomplish in my image making.
Searching for that tension means going beyond the usual angles and points of view. Ideally, I am looking for the moment of solitude that brings the elements of the photograph into cohesion. Light is a primary element in the image, especially when it is filtered or dappled or indistinct, but still a defining force.
The importance of light is seen in my work with natural objects, as well as in my work with people.
My main focus is fine art photography, but I am open to proposals for contracted projects and collaboration.
