My photography involves paths of various themes: a gloomier, occasionally frightening realm of hidden dreams and past remembrances, sentimental playgrounds of childhood memories and a desire to explore the various spiritual offerings people have for their loved ones. Initially working with 35mm, then large format B&W photography, the recent development of the digital process has allowed my vision to grow exponentially, both in color and B&W. My computer is my new darkroom: the use of Photoshop, Lightroom and other software has allowed me to reconnect and share my vision of the world. I pare my work with foundations of ambiguous apparitions and convey a vision the viewer can bond with on many levels. I am an independent photographer. My energetic craving for photography began in 1971 after my father passed away. I try to capture the world as we know it, and offer it in a manner we have not thought of.
