About the Book
This book was originally created as a photo and graphic design class assignment during my first year at R.I.T.
The premise of this project was to illustrate each of the phrases of the first paragraph of Charles Dickens's "Tale of Two Cites," using primarily photos already at hand. (The professor had us change the last part of the paragraph to create the title and theme of the book.)
While this book was created over 40 years ago during the height of the Viet Nam War, its theme is as meaningful now as it was back then.
Over 40 years of professional and creative photographic and graphic design/desktop publishing experience, including handling a wide range of corporate and editorial location and studio photographic assignments, graphics to illustrate presentations and both print and Web-based publications, logos and corporate identities and the creation of both speaker-support and self-running "kiosk" PowerPoint presentations, and Web-based HTML and Flash slideshows. While the majority of my work has been done in the Northeast, U.S., I've also traveled to other parts of the U.S. and Canada, as well as overseas to Ireland and Italy. In recent years, urban and rural landscapes, nature and people have been my favorite photographic subjects.
