“I find New York City busy, noisy, crowded, messy, and intimidating, but “OH SO PHOTOGENIC.” On the other hand, flowers are quite the opposite–quiet, serene, beautiful, but also “OH SO PHOTOGENIC.” The isolation of the pandemic is what allowed me the time to fine tune my computer skills, and delve into floral photography.

My interest in photography began in the mid 1970’s. Inspired by photographers such as Ansel Adams and Walker Evans, black and white photography, the zone system, and infra-red photography held my interest for decades before I got into color photography. Of late, the “Post Processing” of images with Adobe’s Photoshop and Corel’s Painter programs has been exciting and allows me the freedom to alter images to match my artistic visions. The “Post Processing” of the many images I’ve taken over the years kept me very busy during the isolation of the pandemic.”
