My interest in photography was fostered by my father who still maintains a catalogued inventory of 28,000 Kodachrome slides. I come from an artistic family who can paint and draw but I can’t create a scene with my hands. So, I look through the lens of a camera. Mostly, I stick to writing. I retired from a career in local government and spend my time doing things outside…with a camera in hand.
My art bridges the world of reality and the realm of imagination. Using the techniques digital art offers today’s photographer I meld classic photography with digital imagery creating a medium I call “Interpretative Photography.”
“New York City – 40 Images”
I’ve been photographing New York City as one of my projects since 1980 and now have more than 800 photographs. Four hundred of them are in the collection of the New-York Historical Society and one was published in a book titled “Treasures From The Collection”. The exhibit at the Sachem Library will have forty photos including some new ones.
