My love affair with photography started in 1969 during my time in Viet Nam and has continued, with a slight hiatus, to this day.
I began taking pictures as a way of remembering what I saw and it evolved into a way of showing what I felt. When this happened I stopped taking pictures as showing what I felt was not at that time an option for me.
I experienced a personal evolution during that hiatus. As I came to terms with myself I started to play around with the camera again. My images continued to evolve as a way of showing the world what I felt as much as what I saw.
Since I was working with a camera I started to learn the art of print making which until that time I did not know was a separate skill from photography.
I enjoy all forms of photography portraiture, architectural, product and fine art and just about every way I've seen to use a camera. However abstract images are my personal favorite.
