I'm a street photographer. I started photographing when I was 15 (1957) in a pool hall in Baltimore. I dreamed of a career as a photo journalist, but chose a science career after college due to the limitation of paraplegia from childhood polio. Toward the end of my science career I turned again toward street photography and photo essays that I now pursue during retirement from science. I've created photo essays while visiting the northern hill tribes of Thailand, the slums of Jackson, Mississippi, and drag queens in Washington. I've always tried to express the feelings and emotions of my subjects.
