I'm a largely self taught photographer who currently has the time to devote myself to the art of taking pictures and creating photomontage. This has taken me many places both out in the world and inside my own imagination. As a young child looking at the world and responding carefully to it became the cornerstone of my interest in photography.. Looking was understanding, a way to prepare for what was coming. It has evolved and matured with the aid of a camera and my growing awareness that what I see is indeed there and deserves observation.
