My approach to photography is through the filter of fine arts. I studied photography at Cal State Northridge with Roger Brown, where I learned to see depth, I received a BFA from Cal Arts . Photography had been a means to document my art, until one day I picked up a digital Leica a camera that not encumbered with a lot of settings, I remembered the pleasure of photography. I now use both the Leica and the Ricoh GR in my daily explorations.
Years are snapshots, images taken in total freedom, made as a response to an impulse… independent and unconnected. The exceptions are in projects which are collections of images grouped into projects.
Photography simply is way for me of seeing what I see.
