I photograph. I enjoy visiting places for the first time, or the 31st time. I think my curiosity is like that of a child seeing for the first time. Most comfortable in cities, you might call me a flâneur, or as Baudelaire coined it: "A botanist of the sidewalk". I am attracted to life and the serendipity of the moment.
I am a follower of Gianni Berengo Gardin, the Italian analog photographer of great renown. Rebelling against modern convention, I still shoots film. My photographs, like those of Berengo Gardin bear a simple green stamp that reads: 'Vera Fotografia' (genuine photograph). The stamp conveys the simple message that what you see in the photograph was before me when I framed it and pressed the shutter, nothing has been manipulated digitally in any way. My photographs are printed in a darkroom using traditional chemistry. Each print only scanned for the purpose of illustration online.
