This retrospective exhibition will contain work including: portrait, documentary and other whimsical photographic musings. From book and magazine projects to fashion and corporate work this show spans 50 years of creativity.
As a photographer for over 50 years I have been so fortunate to have had the opportunity to shoot everything ranging from journalism, fashion , landscape, portrait, corporate/commercial to whimsical. I would say that I make pictures that tell a story or make you feel a certain something. In my early career I was penalized for not specializing, I have no regrets, everything worked out just fine! I was lucky enough to find magazine editors who saw a wide skill set as an asset. Should I see something I like the looks of, I make the picture, and that’s that.
