Interested in photography for 20 years, completely digital since 1998. Was founder and CEO of Altamira Group, developed Genuine Fractals software application. Spent many years working with the development of scalable high resolution digital imagery. Photographic speciality is French Romanesque architecture and Throne of Wisdom madonnas in France. These madonnas are mostly 12th century wooden polychrome statues, often "black madonnas". Please note that my primary concern as a photographer is the subject, not an interpretation of the subject. This is not an apology, but a statement of intent. I intend to shoot every Romanesque church in France that interests me, and every Throne of Wisdom madonna to which I can get access. I have a presentation on the Black Madonnas, if you are interested in an explanation of the subject matter and why it is of interest to me. If you would like to read discussions on this photography, we have a blog site at Via Lucis. Please note that I am no longer submitting photos for ratings or rating photos taken by others. It is clear that with no standards for ratings and no requirement to explain extremes at either end, that the exercise is pointless. Dialogue, on the other hand, is the stuff of life. Thanks to all my friends on PN, for your interest and support.
