Planet Earth

Artist Statement

The camera works to document the external, but more importantly, magnifies the mysteries which exist within one’s self.

I organize reality by looking thru the frame of a camera, studying the visual relationships of people to people, objects and locations. I am often surprised at the transformation an image takes from reality to printed image. It is this distillation that compels and encourages me to continue to explore and look at the details of my surroundings.

Revenues from sales go into fixing or replacing older equipment, computers, hard drives, organizing, planning and producing new portfolio's of images and finding venues for shows and publications with the eventual goal of creating several books based on my portfolios of images. Thankfully, its a never ending cycle of work and enjoying seeing which images take flight.

Interested in collecting my photographs or speaking with me about commissions or assignments? See any photographs in these galleries that would look great in your home or office? Contact me either by email or phone.

besides the series listed below, my work is available in limited and numbered editions on archival pigment prints or in metal aluminum prints. Hand signed and numbered and shipped worldwide.

'The Art of the Automobile' series is an open and unlimited series of my work and is printed on gloss aluminum and needs no additional framing. Perfect marriage between the gloss finish of the metal on a car and the gloss finish of these unique prints.

'Flower Power' is also an open and unlimited series with a choice of either printing on metal / aluminum prints or as archival pigment prints.
