There are two primary sections to this site, both are groups of portfolios. The Thematic Portfolios are small bodies of photographs, usually no more than fifteen, that are conceptually related to each other regardless of when the images were produced. Each of these portfolios is accompanied by a short statement.
The Chronological Portfolios are groups of photographs roughly divided into brackets of five years. These collections are very much an overview of everything that I've produced. Generally, I'm a "photographic omnivore", so I've allowed these groups to be very wide ranging in subject matter. A couple of descriptive paragraphs, placed beneath the page navigation, provide a little bit of context for the images.
Regarding the technology used in making the images, up until 2008 I was using film almost exclusively. Beginning in 2008, I started experimenting seriously with digital capture. I have used a computer for all of my post-capture work since about 1997. Before then, B&W images were made either as negatives and printed in a traditional darkroom or, usually, they were created as direct positives using the Tmax Direct Positive process or Agfa Scala B&W transparency film and not printed. My color images were shot on color transparency film and, when printed, printed as Cibachromes.
Since turning to the computer, I print all color images as traditional C-prints and B&W as either C-prints or archival pigment prints. I have printed some of my color images as pigment prints, but, since I prefer how silver-based prints interpret subtle color contrasts, I usually only print color images on an inkjet printer when I need a proof print.
If you have questions about the images or my photographic technique, please feel free to get in touch.
