Kyoto Japan

I was born in Niagara Falls Canada and my father moved to Niagara-on-the-lake in 1968, so did I, my sister Miriam had gone to college in Toronto. Toronto for me too, then India for the year in 1975~76 and hitched west from Delhi to Istanbul. No camera on the road west though.
My India photos pushed me to do more photography, so back to Canada and Vancouver, in time for Punk! and anti-nuclear protest organizing. I ended up in Commercial Illustrators studios assisting, and attended Langara Community College graduating with a Professional Photographer's diploma
and experience.
So I moved to Japan!
