The images in this slide show will be featured in a show at the Nashville Jazz Workshop beginning on Sunday, August 17, 2014. The opening reception will be that afternoon from 3 to 5pm. Half of the show presents 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.
