Colored Photographs

I have been making photographs since I was eight years old. My first camera was my father's Kodak Brownie Hawkeye (on loan). I now have over fifty years worth of negatives, a statistic that I find overwhelming. I almost always carry a camera of some kind and since I spend a significant portion of my day on a bicycle that camera is usually, but not always, a small one.

I started out with the intent of documenting my life in photographs but it just didn't turn out that way. I'm not a documentary photographer. I photograph what I see and never who I'm with. My photographs are rarely occupied. I have been accused of wanting the world to be uninhabited except for me. There may be some truth in that but I think that I am just too shy to photograph people.

Due to a demanding career, I did not show my photos for over forty years. I have taken drawing and painting classes at many institutions but I am largely self taught in photography. I participated in two workshops, one taught by Ansel Adams in the 60s and another taught by David Vestal in the 90s. My photographs can be viewed on the web at
