STATEMENT

Many years ago I was given an antique twin lens Rolleifex camera with which I made rather melancholy but evocative black and white landscapes of Martha’s Vineyard. With guidance and critique from painters and photographers I respected, I developed a style which obscures boundaries between painting and photography, emphasizing shape and atmosphere rather than content or locale. Given my place on the timeline of photographic technology, I made the often conflicting transition from darkroom to digital, a formative journey that led me to now comfortably straddle film and digital photography.
