Artist's Statement

I have been photographing for over 40 years.

I began my work by revisiting the neighborhoods I grew up in, eventually traveling to other places, choosing subjects as I accidentally encountered them, or they, me.

In time, beginning about 20 years ago, I was drawn to the study of the human figure. Always using available light, I desire to merge the natural grace and beauty of the figure with still life, found objects and musical instruments. Relying on the techniques of collage, hand-coloring, drawing and tonings, as well as on the mysterious surprises that only the darkroom can reveal, I pursue the goal of creating a harmonious image for each photograph.

At this point in my life, in conjunction with my studies of the figure, I continue to explore the streets of the city, coming face to face with new generations of humanity, as well as nature's own landscapes and seascapes.
