I'm a photographer with lousy vision - born very nearsighted, only partially correctable. Whether it’s ignorance, stubbornness or over-compensation, I've "blindly" refused to face facts. The truth is, in photography, how well you see has only a little to do with how well you "see".
Much of my work is unplanned. I find an interesting place, with nice light and the fun begins. Shooting handheld, I become kid-like - curious, excited and willing to see things in new and sometimes odd ways.
In 2003, I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s – with a nasty hand tremor! “But I’m a STILL Photographer,” I argued!
Then I saw I could use the tremor – in fact, any movement - as an art technique! I began a series, “Un-Still Photography: The Art of Motion Within a Still.”
Photography lets me see the world in new ways. It has also allowed me to turn my so-called “disabilities” into something positive and empowering. I hope my images help you “see” your world in new ways.
