Artist’s Statement

In all of my photography, I am attracted to simple, found subjects that for me, inexplicably, have beauty and an emotional power.  In looking over my work, I recognize that I respond to structure and light, shape and color.  Every outing is a scavenger hunt to see what I will find.    


I have been professionally involved in photography since 1973.  Employment has  included newspaper photojournalism, Atlanta History Center in-house photographer, black and white children’s portraiture, and, since 2007, teaching digital photography and video to middle schoolers and doing in-house photography at a K-12 school in Atlanta.  I have always explored fine art photography, exhibiting whenever possible.
