I offer this collection of photographs with respect and encouragement to each person beginning to find his or her way in photography, and to each casual photographer who records family events, pets, and trips.
Stretch yourself. Reach for satisfactions in photography only you can recognize. I challenge you to find subject matter you care about strongly, that no one else would know to photograph, that no one else would photograph your way.
Here is a selection of images I made from 1950 to the present. None were made for a market. All were made for personal satisfaction, collectively an enthusiast’s view of his world, one man’s photographic exploration of his time and place.
