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
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.
