In my youth I would watch my dad in his makeshift darkroom developing photographs of the family. It seemed like magic when, in the red glow of the safelight, the image would appear from a blank piece of paper immersed in the developing tray. I was hooked. That was when I was still in high school, over 40 years ago. I have been taking pictures ever since.

I attended Virginia Commonwealth University for a year and a half. At that time VCU didn't even offer photography as a course let alone a major so I ended up majoring in sculpture in order to do photography. If that sounds crazy, just remember it was the seventies. Any way I soon realized that college was not going to take me where I wanted to go. For the next 30 years I continued to take pictures while working as a bricklayer and going through the ups and downs that life throws at us.

Now instead of using chemicals, tanks and trays to 'develop' an image I use a laptop and Photoshop, but it still seems like magic.
