I've done many things in my life, and there has always been a camera with me: stills and slides. Who was there and what were they doing. I love to follow process, get its rhythm, capture it at its nodes.
About twelve years ago, I felt it was time to purse the craft side of photography, placing that first, and minimizing commentary. Painfully, I parted with my two Canon A-1s, went digital, and set out to master some tools of a Photographer.
I follow light; but, once in a while I like to photograph people instead of pines and ponies. I studied studio lighting in Israel and became addicted.
When I came to France, I began a project of Street Corner Cafe Portraits, which is ongoing. I gave several expositions of this work; but, I wanted to work with more serious subjects. So began my current visual ethnography of Work.
People at Work are different than they are down at the local cafe. It's not that they are serious, etc., it's that they are focused on their task, literally, at hand.
