I have experience in many forms of photography including scientific, technical, commercial and art.From atoms to mountains and every scale in between. I have won a few photo awards in my day when I was interested enough to enter competition. That’s when I was inspired by the likes of the 20th century photographers including Ansel Adams, Annie Leibovitz, Alfred Stieglitz, Dorothea Lange, Brassaï, André Kertész, Paul Strand and Edward Weston to just name a few. As you may notice, these people cover several genre of the art form from landscape to fashion. Those days are long past. Right now I’m interested in both 21 century photographers who are innovating with new digital technologies but also the great painters that mastered light, shadow and color as well as the abstract expressionists who used saturated color. I am especially interested at this time in the painters such Pollack, O’Keeffe and the color field mythological motifs of Mark Rothko and Joan Miro. Today my interest when I create photographic images lies principally in visual essentials and the emotional content as it relates to our collective unconsciousness (Jung) evoked through color, luminosity, darkness, space and contrasts. How to create emotional spaces with serious themes like tragedy, ecstasy and, of course, the sublime emotional experience of life itself with only two dimensional images.
