About the Book
This suburban book contains work that is mostly from 1984 to 1992. If it didn’t come from the cul-de-sac during those years it’s certainly about that time and place. We still live on the cul-de-sac and through this book you can relive it with us. It’s a mashup of words and photos that were never intended to be compiled; if we were to plan this, each of our egos would have stopped this project in its early stages, and we would not be talking to each other ever again. But, one thing led to another, and we realized how much we encouraged and supported each other’s artistic voice.
I'm a second-generation photographer. I live in the shadow of the Matterhorn. Every one on the cul-de-sac knows when it’s 9:35. The booms of Disney’s fireworks are the heartbeat of our summer evenings. You can still see the bombs bursting in the air if you’re young enough to climb the fifty-year-old tree in my front yard. I’ve attended the local schools, but most of my training in photography came from my family’s photography business, which was started the day that I was born. I’ve been an artist exhibiting my work around the world since 1986 and a photography teacher at a local college since 1996. Photography is my life.
