During the last few years I have tried to view my surroundings more acutely, and to recreate not only the varied images that presented themselves, but also the feeling that was inherent at that moment. Many of the images were shot during poor weather conditions- snow, fog, cold, wind, or rain; but these circumstances I believe lend a certain atmosphere to the scene that could not be achieved under picture-postcard conditions. Much like the outcome of research, a successful photograph is achieved in only a small fraction of cases, but the few surviving examples are self-satisfying, and may also be to you.
I have photographed several different locations- locally in Massachusetts; the Penobscot Bay area of Maine where water and fog dominate; Iceland, a country that has wonderful lighting conditions as a result of the Northern latitude and daily combination of wind, rain, and sun; and lately during winter in Yellowstone National Park.
I am a research scientist, and have studied photography at Maine Photographic Workshops; Cape Cod Workshops; also for many years at the Worcester Center for Crafts in Massachusetts. My works have been exhibited locally at single person and juried shows.
Images on shells, beachstones, and glass are done by painting a liquid photographic emulsion onto the surface, and printing onto that surface. I make the glass paperweights at the New Glass Works studio in Worcester.
