have been taking photographs for more than twenty years, but did
not begin displaying them until 1995. Although I have no formalized
training in art or photography; I have always had an interest
in all forms of art and studied some art history in college. Through
my travels I have had the opportunity to visit a wide variety
of museums and continue a personal study of art.
photographs are taken with a Nikon 35 mm camera and more recently
with a medium format Mamiya 7 II range finder. I use Agfa slide
film almost exclusively for my work because I like the rich warm
colors. All R prints and Ilfochromes are by two laboratories carefully
supervised to insure uniformity and quality. I mount and mat the
work with acid free materials. The work focuses primarily on detail
and perspective of what are often quite ordinary scenes or objects.
My hope is that the viewer will see the scene in a new way, that
the photograph will elicit an emotional response on the part of
the viewer, and create a true sense that you could enter the picture.
of the photographs are printed full frame, and are not cropped
or computer enhanced in any way. For me, photography is a way
of seeing, and the image taken must be taken as a whole, artistically,
to merit printing.
other work is in the areas of career and organization development.
I have been working with people in career transition, employment
and hiring for over twenty years. Many of my clients are from
the professions and specifically law firms.
