Artist StatementPlease check out my website to see more of my work. I have been photographing professionally for nearly 20 years. My work ranges from fine art to political. Currently I am working on a new series that will hopefully communicate many of the concerns that I am struggeling with.
ARTISTS STATEMENT I started photographing trees and the figure over 20 years ago. The figure reflects the different chapters of my life. The landscape represents the background and textures of my life. I look for trees that remind me of the human form. The lines and cracks accentuate the visual imperfections and reflect character that comes with age. CURRENTLY I have been a professional photographer for over 20 years in the Maryland area. I have worked for The Baltimore Sun, The Walters Art Gallery, taught photography at Community Colleges, and currently a house photographer (part time) for the House of Representatives in Washington, D.C. Capital Hill. ??When I am asked what is it that I like best to photograph? The answer is always the same. What ever it is that I am working on at the time.
