Self portrait – 11/1/11

My photographs have been shown around the USA and Canada. Through photography I explore how we encounter and find meaning in life – revealed though our creations, our passions and pastimes, and the vestiges we leave behind when we’re gone. My perspective is also influenced by lessons provided by modern scientific thought. I explore those lessons on my website Quantum Age and my blog Quantum Sense, both of which are focused on the cultural and social implications of modern scientific thought and the technology it has enabled.

I became involved in photography in 1973, during my senior year at Hobart & William Smith Colleges. Basically self-taught, my personal approach to photography evolved through a general process of intuitive trial and error. After about ten years of “serious” photography, I turned away from it to explore other facets of life. I spent 25 years learning many things – a process that continues today. When I returned to photography with a digital camera in 2008, it was with the goal of using photography to explore some of those facets and share some of those lessons.

At one time or another over the years I have been a founding member and president of Photovisions, a cooperative photography gallery in Syracuse; a member and president of Associated Artists of Central New York in Syracuse; and a member of the Albany Center Gallery, the Troy Photo CenterThe Center for Photography at Woodstock and the Soho Photo Foundation (now Soho Photo) in New York City.

My book of photos from the balmy 2015 Ididarod ceremonial start – “Mushers In The Slush” – is available on Amazon.
