Short bio…

For over thirty years, I have explored the unique qualities of black and white infrared film. I found myself being continually drawn to the art deco and yesteryear feel of the images. To depict the “American Dream,” I have wandered through amusement parks, parade grounds, beaches, and boardwalks. While sometimes a participant at these venues, I have strived to maintain the role of an outsider. Recording a broken Ferris Wheel or kids in front of an ice cream stand render a timeless quality.

It lends itself to the images I shoot, and from a technical standpoint, it provides the halation that digital photography cannot deliver.

Your photography feels like…

A trip back in time.
