Leaving the corporate world after 35 years and moving to Cushing, Maine has allowed me
to seriously concentrate on my photography which was previously always relegated to the
edges of my life. I have thousands of images to harvest, many from summers in Maine; and
I now have time both for new explorations with my camera, and for building some discipline
and new skills in digital editing and printing.
The world around us is 360 degrees of totally immersive color, form, and motion; in a
constant state of change. My camera sees only little frozen rectangles of that visual
cacophony. But far from that being a liability, it enables me to really focus and seek out the
“choice bits of the world – fixed fragments which for me represent beauty, mystery, and/or
wonder that could easily otherwise pass by unnoticed. I'm fascinated by breaking the bonds
of context, serendipitous design, color relationships, visual layers, and textural elements which
can transcend the two-dimensional nature of my images. For me, photography is a powerful
tool for my continuing discovery of beauty in apparently mundane and unremarkable fragments
of the world.
In the past several years I have been fortunate to have my work shown in 7 different galleries in Maine,
providing the best possible excuse for continuing to do new work! Check back — I continue to add to this
