I am a retired American psychiatrist. I have recently returned to Alabama after a decade in Paris, France where I reconnected with an early passion for photography and from where I was able to travel a great deal. I prefer the spontaneity of informal portraits to studio photography, and I love connecting with people in other cultures--that would include southerners, since I am actually a northerner! I recently won the "Best in Show" award with a photograph entitled Crematorium submitted to a statewide competition called Double Exposure. I look forward to some insightful feedback on my work through this submission. Thank you.
