About the Book
I am always on the hunt for that moment of mystery, surprise or humor in my everyday life. Lately I have sought images that hint to a larger story, like a publicity still from some forgotten movie. These fragments of fictional stories are taken from the real world in an odd coupling of my unconscious, my intentions, and chance.
When titles for individual photos are requested, I usually label them "untitled." I do not want words to effect the viewers' responses to what they see. My goal is to stimulate imagined stories rather than documenting the real world
I’ve worked as a psychiatrist for the past forty years. Several years ago I became fascinated by the possibilities of photography, taught myself, and now rarely go anywhere without a camera. My main direction has been candid photography shot in public spaces. I have had my images published in several street photography books. A series of my photographs and my book UNTITLED were exhibited at the Format Festival in England. I've been in group shows in London, Cardiff, New Orleans, and Los Angeles and have been the winner of two international street photography competitions. I am a member of the street photography collective Burn My Eye.
