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), found on the home page under Diptychs and Quadtychs.  The first entries on that page include the original image and the crop I used to make the tychs.  Clicking on those images will open a gallery for the derived tychs.
