Photographic Interests: Images that represent
events and places -- especially those that have historical impact. The Holy
Land and locations in Europe and the Eastern U.S. are favorite subjects.

the ebb and flow of life. He prefers simple images with geometric shapes and uncomplicated colors.
usually blends colors and textures of subjects so that they have a direct and
simple relationship to each other.
