About the Artist
I have been photographing the world around me since age six when I was given a camera by my mother who was a landscape painter. The camera was a Kodak Flashmight and I was hooked immediately by the magic I could make with this simple little box. I began photographing everything around me. The woods and fields around my home, portraits of my dog adorned with various hats and costumes, family and friends, the night sky. By eight years old, I was making still life images in my bedroom with a new Kodak Brownie Hawkeye camera. These were mostly dioramas of imaginary and far-off places, along with studies of specimens I gathered during many forays into the natural and unnatural world. After majoring in photography in college and working as a professional, advertising photographer for 35 years I closed my commercial studio fifteen years ago and have been creating my own imagery and personal projects exclusively. Projects have been wide-ranging and over-lapping and have included wild adventures photographing indigenous cultures and quiet times in my small studio creating large format, still-life images. And a lot in between. I have been photographing coastal images along the US east coast for three years. Lives and works Hopewell, NJ.
