Born in Ontario, Canada, I began taking photographs of musical events and street activity in the 1960s, and later expanded to photo illustration, including for print, album covers, scientific and occasional commercial work. Along the way, I earned degrees in philosophy and medicine, but continued to expand my photographic efforts. With the advent of high quality, archival, pigment-based inks for photographic printing, it became possible to have even more control over tonal values and prints and to capture the experience of events and the urban landscape. I have come to realize that these photographs are not just representations of what I have seen, but are two dimensional records of all my sensations; the photographs a way for others to experience what I did at the moment of capture.
It has been my privilege to participate in exhibitIon and to have my photographic work installed in a number of centers, publications or private collections where it has been possible to share it with others. This has included:
Center for Photographic Arts, Carmel, California
World Trade Center Arkansas, Rogers, Arkansas Walton Art Center, Northwest Arkansas Art Experience, Gilbert, Arizona DDP Gallery, Northwest Arkansas Photo Methodè, Austin, Texas
