I began photographing with film, mostly in black and white, in my college years in the 60s, shooting predominantly in street and urban contexts. Unfortunately, I was forced by the pursuit of a "straight" job and family to put the camera away for several decades until pulling it out again in 2007 to use it to photograph guitars I was building. In no time I turned my attention back to photography as an art form and have continued my exploration since then, shooting mostly in the Adirondacks of Northern New York, where I live, and neighboring Vermont, with occasional forays to New York City, the Florida coast or anywhere else I happen to roam. I concentrate on creating interpretive, impressionistic and abstract images that relate my personal vision of or reaction to the subject matter that lies in front of me. Subjects includes people, landscape, abstract, street photography, and anything else that captures my interest and which I feel I can render with my own interpretation or point of view in a way that makes it distinct from how others have treated the subject. In short, I seek to capture and interpret life’s visual symphonies, one click at a time. I feel that, to a large extent, my photographs consist of three different points of view: the raw material that is the literal subject matter of the image that my camera captures; what I see and sense – and hope to portray – when I look at and experience that subject matter and interpret it with my camera; and what the viewer sees when looking at the image. Those may be three very distinct views of what is, essentially, rooted in the same thing. That, to me, is stimulating art. And that is the greatest part of what draws me to photography. I hope you enjoy viewing the work as much as I do creating it. Please feel free to peruse my Artist Statement for a more detailed discussion of my work.
