As Proust wrote: “Photography achieves singular images even out of something otherwise well-known, images different from those we are used to seeing, singular and authentic.”
Light is my way of showing the strange within the familiar—unusual illumination, bizarre distortion. As one who grew up in a gray industrial city, I'm especially drawn to yellows, reds and oranges—colors that project warmth, that create contrast, that show us how every-day images can be shown with a luminescent and singular beauty.
I have been a practicing fine-arts photographer in Long Beach since 1995. My work tends to fall into one of four categories: candid portraiture (especially of my fellow jazz musicians), night photography, floral photography and architectural photography. I work in both color and black and white.
