The joy of creating a photograph for me extends thru the entire process. From initial concept to holding the final print. In 40 years I've never tired of any aspect of this process.


The act of making a photograph is often different from other visual arts. The process of making a painting or a drawing is additive. One starts with a blank canvas. Often, making a photograph is just the opposite, the process is subtractive. We are all constantly bombarded with visual chaos. What I hope to do is remove all the elements that don't fit with what I see in my mind’s eye. I want the viewer to experience what I saw without all the clutter and get a sense of what it felt like to stand at that particular spot at that particular moment.


Recently I find myself most interested in light and shadow, the play of light creating shapes

and textures.
