Statement and CV

The combination of exploration and discovery is at the core of what inspires my photography. Working within the framework of a project’s theme, I strive to communicate a story or a unique viewpoint through a narrative approach. Reacting intuitively to the visual stimulus of an environment and making adjustments as a photo series evolves is an exciting challenge.

While studying advertising and graphic design at Pratt Institute in the early 1970’s my coursework also covered photography from a commercial and fine art perspective. As a result, my interest in photography grew and became the medium of choice for my personal work. Upon graduating with a BFA in 1975 I embarked on a career in graphic design and have operated my own studio for the past 27 years while continuing to be interested in photography. Since 2005 I have exhibited my images in solo as well as national and regional juried group shows at galleries, art centers and alternative venues. My work is included in private collections.
