Welcome to my world. As an artist, I create images with the medium of photography. There are many types of photographic processes represented here, including digital fabrications in Photoshop. This site archives work produced over the past fifty years. The images are organized in an outline of categories with links to help you navigate around intuitively. It is a network which will take each visitor to a different place with each visit. Just jump in and wander. Wherever your curiosity takes you, I trust, it will be an interesting journey.
My images contain their own reality and do not need to conform or be governed by the laws of the everyday universe we live in.
My camera and computer are a stage for the performance of ideas.
It is through the creative process of manifesting these dreams as image that I understand better who I am.
Nothing in my work is coincidental. It is a grounded, guided experience between what we know, what we don’t know and the closure we strive to acquire between.
The assumption that photographic images represent something “true” is unique to photography and can be used to many ends.
My images are examples of possibility within the realm of the impossible.
