Artist Statement

Digital photography is just so fantastic! Working with RAW files on a calibrated monitor to produce archival black and white and color prints is capability that I really appreciate–all this after hundreds of hours spent, on my feet, in wet fumey darkrooms over 25 years’ time.

In my personal projects there is challenge in making pictures that capture color, sound or mood, time or scent, structure or bigness, movement or gesture, quietness or a combination of these. There’s adventure and sometimes luck in finding what to capture. My enchantments have varied between features of the natural world, antique fabrics, water, stained glass, rock, rusty vehicles, actors, remote towns, vast black empty landscapes, shiny vehicles, mannequins, buildings.

My pictures have been in juried exhibits at: Palm Beach Photographic Center, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Newton Free Library, Griffin Museum of Photography.

Clients have included: Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Towns of Needham and Weston, Newton Wellesley Hospital, families and individuals, artists, Huntington Theatre Education Department, Berklee College of Music, Handel and Haydn Society.

I graduated from Paier College of Art’s Professional Photography program in 1977, four years after buying my first SLR. My fascination with pictures really began as a nine-year-old the first time I saw a 2 ¼ color transparency.

Enjoy the pictures!
