I've worked as a photographer ever since spending a summer in the mid sixties photographing in Europe. I made a living from architectural and fashion photography and then taught photography at the University of Victoria.
My photographs and writing have been published widely in newspapers including the Globe & Mail and magazines including Image in Progress, Camera Mainichi, Camera Canada, Saturday Night, Raddled Moon, Close Up and Arts West. I curated fifty photography exhibitions at Open Space Gallery and was a consultant to the Winnipeg Art Gallery's photographic collection.
Photographic projects that I'm working on include a series on 18th century landscape gardens in England and a rephotographing of the Parisian scenes photographed by Eugene Atget in the early twentieth century. Other projects include documentation of street graffiti around the world and the nude in the landscape. Recent work includes surreal photographs of studio nudes collaged into backgrounds shot in Europe and the Art History Portrait project. Books include the Stereo Show and An Admirable View. I shoot in a beautiful large studio in Victoria's historic Chinatown.
My work has been published and exhibited widely and awards include two Canada Council grants, a Gold medal from Trierenberg and the Photographic Society of America award for critical writing.
