BIOGRAPHY
In the early to mid 60s, when I was a high school and college student, photography was a VERY important part of my life, but, like so many others, I gradually got out of it (except for family and vacation photos, mostly shot on color print film with a P & S). About 8 years ago, largely at the urging of my then 16 year old son, I got out my old equipment (starting with the pre-WW II Leica IIIa I'd owned since high school) , set up my darkroom, and have devoted myself to B & W photography. I show my work every occasion I get and even, occasionally, sell a print. I shoot medium format almost exclusively now, with about 3/4ths of my work done with a Rolleiflex TLR I've been using since 1962. I'll scan my negatives for the web, or for publication, but my "real"prints [ALWAYS B&W]are all done in the darkroom.
