While in my everyday
routines, I often come upon naturally
occurring visuals, where the subject of the image is
not a person or object, but the Light itself or its reflection,
or in the case of Shadows, the absence of Light.
the last few years, I have begun to collect and create images that
show others things light does “when nobody’s looking,” or
scenes that we pass in our everyday lives, but may fail to appreciate
in shape or symmetry. My goal is to bring those images to the
consciousness of my audience.
Generally I like for
the Sun to supply the "paint and canvas."
I look to share images that return to the basics of
how we perceive light and darkness
and their interplay, watching as light creates forms and
patterns almost as contrasting yin-yang elements.
I strive for simple
pictures that show others what I saw in one
fleeting momentary glimpse. I feel my subjects are
virtually "ripped" from their actual occurances,
frozen in time for my audience to ponder.
Photoshop has replaced the ‘wet’ darkroom of the old days,
and my current work is created with high-resolution digital
SLR cameras as well as my trusty pocket digital camera
that I try to keep with me at all times. Inkjet prints have
replaced photographic printing, which has let me print on a variety of
fine textured archival papers.
over 35 years, I have been active in photography, having first
exhibited my work at age 16 as a member of the Sarasota (FL) Art Association.
In recent years, I have won several awards in juried shows and I post new
work monthly on my websites.
I exhibit limited-edition, archival pigment prints of 16” x 20” and 11”x15”,
and my work is available for purchase and licensing. Prints are printed in editions
of 20 signed pieces.
from Atlanta, GA, my formal education includes studying
Fine Art at the University of Florida,
and I continue to refine my senses
of tone, design and composition. Residing in Riverdale, NY, I am
employed by a Madison Ave. advertising agency
as a Senior Print Production Manager.
