“The question is not what you look at, but what you see.” – Henry David Thoreau, 1851

I got my first film camera in the early 1960's – a Kodak Brownie with a flash bulb – and that was the beginning of a life-long passion for capturing moments and people. As my interest in drawing and photography grew, I entered college as an art major but turbulent times and my interest in social issues led me to a career in mental health. Then life and responsibility eventually turned me to a corporate career. My one constant throughout was my love for art and photography.

I am now happily devoting my time to making and sharing photographs. (Oh, how proud my father would be.) I have shot major events and small music club venues, but primarily, “I walk the streets.” Each of us can look at an object, a person or scene, and yet, we all see, feel and react differently.

My 2022 solo exhibit, Perspectives, at Roost/Union Arts Center  (Gallery One) in Sparkill, NY . It is representative of what and how I see – in my mind’s eye *– and perhaps tells you a little something about me and what I find naturally beautiful. I feel extremely fortunate to have been able to share these images  in this wonderful setting.
