I’ve been a photographer for all of my adult life. The kind of photography I do is called fine art documentary photography, which means that even though I carefully consider how I make a picture they are accurate depictions of real people and real places. I strive for honesty. This work has led me to be interviewed on numerous radio and television programs, including The National News Hour on PBS, the San Francisco Chronicle and The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. My pictures are making it into museums and corporate as well as private collections. I am profoundly grateful for this recognition; it’s really encouraged me to work harder.
