Biography

I started making photos in the early 1970’s, at first people and places nearby - an island in Maine, friends in Andover, then Providence, NY and Boston to later Madrid, Pere Lachaise Paris, Lisbon, Mexico and Marrakech.

A wide variety of techniques and processes (color infrared, multiple exposures and audio-visual projections) as well as alternative processes and films (Panatomic X, Ektachrome, Kodachrome, Agfa 1000, Polachrome and a wide variety of graphic arts films). 

With first a Kodak camera then a Nikon, a 35mm Rollieflex, a Bolex 16mm (shot single frame - the most beautiful camera I have ever used), Hasselblad, Marron Carrel 1600, a Sinar 4x5 and 8x10 to now an iPhone.* 

The work has spanned 5 decades, and varies quite a bit. The early years were mostly experimentation and exploration to simple slices of what I hope speaks most clearly. Sometimes untouched representations to more emblematic collages - hoping to spark a communal feeling and signify a deeper understanding of the world we live in.
