LIST OF PORTFOLIOS
Objects found while exploring environments in which I travel.
Abstract shapes and forms intensify into simplified patterns that always existed but with the white field of snow, they encourage a new appreciation for seeing the familiar.
In this series of photographs, the sand is my paint and the tides are my brushes. I explore the abstract merging of different types of sand found on Martha's Vineyard beaches and the natural designs and forms created by waves and tides revealing abstract expressions, astrological type landscapes, or mythological creatures found within.
Like many of my images that are made in diverse environments where it is often easy to walk past the details without slowing down and noticing the subtlety and fascinating characteristics that make up our environments.
"Originally referred to as the "The Devil's Den," Menotomy Rocks Park was established in 1896 during a period when the importance of recreational woods and parklands was supported as part of major public planning initiatives at the local, state, and regional levels."
Fast cars, extremely noisy engines, noxious fumes I can't think of a more exciting place to spend the day photographing drivers, crews, and fans watching cars built to go as fast as they can down a 1/4 mile track.
Holes in the Universe series attempts to identify and understand our fragile and temporal existence on earth. How many times do we think we understand what we are seeing only for it to turn out that we completely mis-understood the information we were hearing or seeing.
In this on-going series I look at and photograph how nature and humans impact the way we see and obscure the natural landscape.
Clouds is a portfolio of photographic images based on a Zen like appreciation on the constant flow of passing clouds.
Photographs I have made over the past 15 years in New York City after dark or during the transition from late afternoon into evening.
Photographs of people, places, and objects found along the way to Someplace Else.
Context is vital to understanding the intent of the artist and their images. How one photograph follows the next is vital to the pagination and ultimately telling a story thru photographs.
Better Sit Down For This One: A photo-graphic and design-oriented exploration into three chairs photographed at one of the world's top contemporary museums. Thomas Jefferson collected chairs. Pee-Wee Herman named his 'Chairy.' Archie Bunker's beloved wingback is now at The National Museum of American History. Take a close look at what you're sitting on, writer Witold Rybczynski says, and you'll learn about history and trends in architecture, design, culture, and society.
Am I dreaming while awake? Are we sleeping while walking through life?
In this portfolio of photographs, I wander the deep unconscious details of my mind and reassemble reality into different narratives. Familiar, yet strange and vibrantly new.
What did Boston look like in the early days of the Covid 19 pandemic? Under self-isolation, the city was locked-down pretty tight with a few exceptions. Most of the people I passed were using face masks but I was somewhat surprised at how a fair number of people flaunted the recommendations of health care professionals. Mental illnesses aside, arrogance and self-centered attitudes continue to exist. Maybe Darwin's theories will take its toll but unfortunately, it will also take the innocent and vulnerable as well.
As with most endeavors in life when a person tries to develop skills and knowledge, learning the hard way is the only way because there are just no shortcuts. Trial and error, pain and injuries, disappointments and failure while eventually picking oneself off the ground and trying again until there is the short-lived joy and satisfaction by nailing a jump, perfecting a certain move or defying gravity and shredding the 15 foot deep walls in the bowls for an exhilarating ride.
Surface Tensions is a photographic meditation on the appearance of water. Life on this planet could not exist without it. Water is used for so many different uses: cooking, transportation, growing of foods, cleaning and bathing, industrial and recreational. These images are from the simple pleasures of looking and observing water impacted by tides, winds, currents and reflections.
Not truly knowing what becomes of the human spirit after death, people have been building elaborate memorials for thousands of years to honor and remember family members who have come and gone. The styles of memorials vary, depending on religious beliefs, cultural conformity, costs and the individual wishes of the departed. Sometimes the choice was simply left to the custodians of one’s estate or a government to build a memorial in recognition for personal service to their country and community.
Mannequins are a mirror of our society in so many different and almost invisible ways. They reflect our prejudices and biases not specifically by their existence, but in the ways they are used to promote the products in store windows to a specific demographic who the stores would like to attract to buy their merchandise. The human characteristics seem so strangely relatable while they remain as objects that never change. For me, they are fascinating to look at and photograph because of the unique life-like surreal personalities that the sculptors have imbued within them.
Form and function bolted, welded, and stitched for speed, comfort, performance, and safety. The art and precision of bending metal and chrome to conform to exquisite and sometimes whimsical visions. My photography explores automobiles from the very beginnings of the car industry in 1885 thru to current models.
Available in multiple sizes as unlimited open editions and printed on gloss aluminum substrate and shipped worldwide. No additional framing is necessary. Inquire for sizes and pricing.
In this series, Road Paint, each photograph carries multiple levels of interpretation, whether viewed literally, figuratively or abstractly. My work takes the familiar into the unfamiliar. I document abstract displays of paint found on city streets, distilling them to an essence of line, shape and color.
Fine art limited edition, hand signed, archival pigment prints or printed on gloss aluminum substrates available and shipped worldwide.
There isn't a more typical summer event than the various county fairs and carnivals which pop up all over the USA. This portfolio, looks at the people who go for the fun and rides, to the workers who make the food and run the games, to the spectacular colors which surround these magical and memorable places.
Fine art limited edition, hand signed, archival pigment prints available and shipped worldwide.
When I was starting out as a young photographer in the mid 1970s, street photography was my passion as it remains today. Walking the streets of cities and towns looking at and exploring whatever spoke to me and called for my attention.
Once I graduated from art school and started to make a modest living as a commercial photographer, I had enough money to spend on the more expensive film and processing of color film. Finally, after a decade of shooting exclusively in black and white, I could explore the celebration of color found everywhere. This portfolio highlights this period in my life.
When a point moves with constant velocity in a circular orbit, one refers to that as a Harmonic Oscillations. These images start as a traditional photograph, and then I work within the digital realm by altering the image until I create something that feels complete and finished.
