This portfolio represents the best of the work I’ve created over the past four decades. Some abstract, others documentational,  they are all representative of my search for form, order, and beauty expressed photographically. They serve no narrative, as such they are apolitical. My motives today remain the same as they were when I first picked up a camera with intent 40 years ago.

In 2019 I acquired a full frame digital camera and am enjoying the immediate feedback it provides as well as the uncompromised image quality, but continue to shoot film as inspiration dictates. My medium format 6x6 negatives have been digitized using the Hasselblad Flextight X1; this machine provides exceptional scans that have allowed me to move outside the darkroom and make prints on either traditional silver based materials (Lambda) or archival inkjet prints with many options regarding print surfaces, sizing, and framing.
