Statement and Bio

Statement

Most of my work can be classified as architectural/landscape photography. I also enjoy photographing nature found around my home.

Landscape/Architecture Photography

I photograph the interaction of occupants of the land and how the landscape accommodates those who choose to settle it. My subject matter has been in the mountains, islands, the suburbs of the United States and abroad. Within each photo collection, I describe the areas that I have photographed and have incorporated a Google Map for your reference.

Highlighted Photo Collections

Open Spaces of New Jersey

American Beech Tree

An ongoing study for me is the Open Spaces of New Jersey project. Housing developers work with the local municipality to maintain land for preservation. These areas are a wonderful place to rejuvenate. However, it’s not uncommon for locals to visit carving their names on trees or leaving garbage around fire pits. This set of images are basically a study of these areas.

Islands of Maine

Tide LinesMy most complete series of images are from an island off the coast of Maine named Criehaven. This island was documented during a three year period. It is more than 20 miles away from the mainland and lightly populated. There is no electricity or access to cell towers and the atmospheric elements of the island influence the look-and-feel in my images. I have also visited other more well-traveled islands of Maine, but they do not match the isolated uniqueness of Criehaven.

Ponderings

I publish my insights, current events or field techniques in the section called ponderings.
