About the Artist
I was born and raised in New York City, and spent my career years in the Mid Hudson Valley of New York. After tiring of shivering and shoveling, I moved to the dramatic Southwest. After 12 years as desert dwellers, Lill and I have relocated to the Alabama Gulf Coast. With all of our shows east of the Mississippi River, it just makes good sense to live closer to our shows. As a backpacker and hiker, as well as a seasoned traveler, my goal has always been to travel with as little as possible, but cameras, lenses, a tripod, and bags of film were as much a part of my gear as a toothbrush and soap. Luckily, the digital age has meant less weight and bulk, which has wonderfully coincided with the fact that my body no longer feels the need to overindulge.
I am a self-taught photographer, with more than 45 years of shooting experience. I have photographed landscapes and cityscapes in all 50 states, as well as throughout the Caribbean, Western Europe, and parts of the Middle East. I continue to travel extensively, and to create the images you see here.
Given the opportunity to travel across America and throughout Europe,
I have been able to capture images ranging from cityscapes to canyons, and cactus to canals. Lill and I travel as often as possible and shoot wherever we go, from our own neighborhood, to neighborhoods across the seas.
My parents created this wanderer, discoverer, and obsessed traveler who has passed this gene to Lill. Together, when given the opportunity, we can be on the road, or in a plane within a few hours time. Our wanderlust remains alive and well..
