This book is the best photographic body of work I have accomplished in the forty-five years I have been behind the camera. I focused on the details of the extremely elegant Japanese culture found in the greater Kyoto area and Takayama. I hope you enjoy it.
I see the world differently now. The camera, which narrows the field of vision, has actually expanded my vision. When I realized I was viewing reality as if it were a series of photographs, I initially questioned that perspective. Now, I know my perception is enhanced and enriched from my pursuit of photography. An already dynamic and interesting world has become more so. I am delighted by quality of light, vibrancy of color, unexpected and often unnoticed detail. The stunning structure of an orchid, the intricate ornamentation on an older building, or dishes stacked in a dish drainer are fascinating to me. Abstractions and patterns are richer and invite investigation. My choice of subject matter is limitless. Anything that appeals to my eye is fair game for my camera.
