I began taking and making photographs around 1964. My first darkroom was a closet space under the basement stairs. My other work, painted plywood sculptures, a 1.5 year period, c. 1990, began with frustration at being locked up in a darkroom. I created 15 then, plus 1 piece finished in 2015 made of scaffolding planks bolted together. Photography remains my main love, now utilizing digital tools like most everyone. Finally, I may be an artist but certainly I’m no photographer. I’d say I’m an incidentalist: I discover something without intent and then follow it nonetheless.
