For seventeen years I took pictures but for the last twenty years plus I’ve been making Photographs. I first became interested in Photography while serving with the U.S.Army in the early seventies. I had received training in and was doing sound recording for training films when I realized that my ear and the microphone didn’t hear things in the same way. To achieve good results I had to teach my ear to listen like a microphone. I had to hear beyond the sounds I wanted, to the noise that the ear perceives but the brain filters. I soon realized my eye was the same way and that I could teach myself to see using the tools that mimic vision. I bought a 35 mm camera with some black and white film and started.
