About

I began taking photographs of student life in the early 1970s.  At the time I was committed to using the camera as a means of documenting the tumultuous events of the era.  In the intervening years, the subject matter changed, but the determination to use the camera to document has remained.   I see the camera as a means to capture the often hidden beauty in our everyday experience.  For many years I focused on rusted and weathered surfaces.  I roamed construction sites and railroad yards, but all of that came crashing down with 9/11, making it unwise and therefore unsafe to wander as I once did.  I began incorporating images from my travels, as well as flora and fauna I encounter everywhere.  I continue to seek the novel and unique in my work, with an increasing interest in macro photography.

I began with 35 mm and many of the rust and abstract images were shot in that medium. I have since switched to digital imaging.  All images here, regardless of their origins, are available as digital prints.   Prints are available in 5×7, 8×12, 15×10, 18×12, 21×14, and, for some images, up to 17×40.  I am available for questions or more information at:  insituimage@gmail.com.

I have recently been experimenting with combining images into diptychs and quadtychs (and the occasional octtych).  These are found on a page by that name in the New Work section of the web site.
