The images in this slide show will be featured in a show at the Nashville Jazz Workshop beginning on August 17, 2014. The show will present images of my baritone saxophone that has been in my possession for over four decades. It was made around 1930, and I purchased it in the late 1960s from a musician in Washington, DC, who was a friend of the family. I love the textures of the machined parts and the way light reflects from the surfaces. Saxophones like cameras and photography are indeed a product of the industrial age.


About
Welcome to my web site for my photography. I had a photograph in the 65th Annual River Valley Invitational at the Fort Smith Regional Art Museum (FSRAM), which ran from July to October 2013. Here is a link to the work that was accepted: Arkansas River at Belle Point - Winter

I started in photography very early with my father. He was a chemist who loved the processes in the wet darkroom, and I remember standing on a box, watching the image emerge in the developer tray under the dim safe-light. I continued photographing, built my own darkroom, and worked with Zone System techniques for many years.

Digital technology has brought me back to photography, back to making images. I will always value my experience with film and the darkroom processes, but I could not go back. I put in enough time to realize that I need to put in even more time to really learn the craft of producing a photographic print. The digital darkroom has relieved me of this burden and has given me the ability to explore images in this new medium. It has been a learning process as well, but one that was informed by my earlier work with film. The digital cameras that I use now have technically surpassed the best cameras I used in the past.
