Artist Statement . . .
I want all of my images to have a narrative, which is what I believe distinguishes
my work from many other photographers. I like my work to say something or inspire
a person to think. I don’t like still life photos. They are pretty but they don’t
tell a story. One of my favorite storytelling photos is of my 13-
My current interests are in infrared photography and light painting. What drew me to photography as a profession more than five decades ago was the magic of it—putting a piece of paper in a chemical that looked like water and watching an image appear. Now, I am even more fascinated with the magic of creating photos using digital equipment and photo software. Digital opens up a lot of possibilities that the old style didn’t allow.
