I have been taking photographs for over 40 years, originally using b+w film, with various levels of personal success, but only the in last 6-7 years have I found a reawakening of my passion for photography. I For 4 of those years I was fortunate to live in China and able to travel and explore this wonderful country. Using b+w film and medium format camera I enjoy the slower process this involves which allows me to fully study my subject. To me b+w allows the soul of the image to be discovered. My current desire is to cover documentary stories involving environmental or humanitarian issues.
