The photography in this addition are almost exclusively abstract, but I like street photography as well. I like the cutting edge of everything creative. I'm a student of the classics but admire those who break new ground, artists like Andres Serrano, Thomas Struth, Edward Burtynsky, Cy Twombly and Francis Bacon. I'm a painter and sculptor as well as a photographer but like the immediacy of taking pictures. I take my camera everywhere, always on the prowl for a subject or good shot. It's remarkable how many opportunities we come across almost every day for a great image that can escape even the trained eye.

I have doubts about my photography all the time.

All images for this publication were shot on film and digitally processing with an EPSON Perfection V750 Pro scanner.

I worked as an R&D Laboratory Technician for Polaroid at their now defunct Chemical Operations facility in Waltham MA.

I attended the School of the Museum of Fine Arts and Tufts University through the early 70's
