ABOUT MY WORK

With the exception of the galleries containing Digital Drawings & Paintings and Citiscapes, all of the images on this site began as photographs. My purpose, however, is not to present the camera's view of the world, but, rather, my own creative vision. At times, the camera and I are in closer agreement as to what we see than at others. An exact, literal, external representation of each subject is of less interest to me than is capturing its 'inner light'. Toward that end, I employ computerized filters and effects to create images intended to express the subject as I experienced it, rather than as viewed by the camera's eye.

Some of my work was recently published in the book, On the Milky Way, a collection of art by artists from around the world accompanied by the poetry of Viet Tran. Copy and paste the link below to view the results. http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/invited/3840775/6cc25acf7abf159b1684d3f00cffe2f890a84b0f?ce=blurb_ew&utm_source=widget

ABOUT ME

In my younger days, I enjoyed drawing and oil painting, basically for my own amusement and amazement. I never felt more alive than when I was in the midst of creating something. Over the years, I lost touch with that part of myself. Happily, the gift of a camera for my birthday a few years ago reignited that old creative spark. Retired, I now spend hours taking and editing photos or creating original digital drawings and paintings on my computer. Time really does fly when you’re having fun, and I am having fun.

My home is situated on the shore of the Long Island Sound in the Bronx, New York. I'm blessed with breathtaking views of the water, wildlife and the Throggs Neck Bridge. With all the wonders of nature right outside my door, I could take pictures forever and never leave my home. I also have several very photogenic cats who are more than willing subjects.

Thank you for visiting.

Portraits of Gorillas

These pictures were taken during a recent trip to a Zoo. I was not prepared for the emotional impact these extraordinary animals had on me. Perhaps it's projection, anthropomorphism or a combination of both, but I was moved by the intelligence, dignity and what I perceived as resignation and perhaps even sadness in their wonderfully expressive eyes.
