ABOUT ME

I'm a fine art photographer.  My audience is the gallery scene and juried competitions.  I tend to concentrate on themes and metaphors rather than genres of photography, but my work is organized by genre here.  

 

My work evolves from juxtaposition—opposites sometimes balance one another, sometimes conflict, but still find coexistence in natural détente. This leads me to examine the geometry of line and curve, the relationship of earth and sky, the persistence of ambiguity despite a search for clarity, and the quest for a way forward through challenges while being at peace with present time and space.
