About the Book
After a twenty-five-year career in social psychology documenting some of the most disturbing behaviors in children and youth, I studied photography and began pursuit of a second career in fine art and documentary photography toward the goal of documenting brighter aspects of the nature of being human. My primary goal relates to capturing the wonderment of individuality as manifested in family-related activities, diverse social events and pursuits of personal passions. Of particular interest are unpretentious persons with gentle spirits and otherwise unnoticed individuals. I also am attracted to ironic juxtapositions in modern society and simple wonders of the natural world.
