BIOGRAPHY
I will be a part of a group exhibition called "Heart and Bone, Anatomy and Soul" that will run from July 1st through August 28th at Sol Arts in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

I first became interested in photography about twenty years ago. I pretty much stopped in 1998 and rekindled my interest last summer when I purchased a new camera. Exclusively film until 2004, when I entered the digital age. And now I'm doing a bit of film again. I like both, but to be honest it's not the camera that counts. It's the vision. I love looking at great photographs.

What do I shoot? Pretty much everything although I'm partial to street and documentary work, an avenue I recently ventured into. I also enjoy abstracts and seeking out the odd and unique. I've decided to push forward and see what happens. I'm a much happier person when I have a camera in my hand!

My PN experience? Mostly positive. I confess I'm not particularly crazy about some of the politics or ratings games, and I'm a bit disappointed by "popular tastes" here, but treasures abound if you look for them. I've discovered some wonderfully creative photographers here, most of whom are not TRP regulars.

Influences? I think anyone who is serious about photography should spend more time looking at great work than "how to" books. Nothing motivates me more than seeing some great prints in a gallery or a museum. Or thumbing through photography books of some of the Masters.

Photographers I admire? A long and growing list: Diane Arbus, Eve Arnold, Narelle Autio, Richard Avedon, Bill Brandt, Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Antoine D'Agata, Bruce Davidson, Roy DeCarava, Philip-Lorca DiCorcia, Robert Doisneau, William Eggleston, Elliott Erwitt, Walker Evans, Donna Ferrato, Robert Frank, Lee Friedlander, Bruce Gilden, Emmet Gowin, Lewis Hine, Graciela Iturbide, Seydou Keita, Andre Kertesz, William Klein, Dorothea Lange, Helen Levitt, Jay Maisel, Alex Majoli, Sally Mann, Mary Ellen Mark, Ralph Eugene Meatyard, Joel Meyerowitz, Duane Michaels, Lisette Model, Daido Moriyama, Carl Mydans, James Nactwey, Trent Parke, Gordon Parks, Martin Parr, Gus Powell, Eugene Richards, Miguel Rio Branco, Sebastiao Salgado, W. Eugene Smith, Alec Soth, Joel Sternfeld, Alex Webb, Weegee, Garry Winogrand, Joel-Peter Witkin, Liu Zheng.
