After visiting my son, who moved to Vietnam a few years ago to teach, I felt compelled to put together this book for him. What a dynamic country and such nice people! Turns out to be a book everyone can enjoy!
As a photographer, the click of the shutter is just the beginning of my visual journey. Creating the photographic print is as important as taking the picture for me. The final image is all about my moods and perception of what I see and feel about the subject. Subtle manipulations in the film or digital darkroom, camera and film choices, as well as hand coloring black and white photographs and using alternative processes, are all tools I consider using to create art. I take pleasure in sharing my sense of wonder with you of what nature has to offer us visually
My fine art prints have been exhibited extensively in the Hudson Valley for over 25 years in solo and group shows, as well as nationally.
