About Photographer

From local urban views, to the Mediterranean and beautiful villages of Provence, to Venice and Burano, and most recently to Cuba, my work has evolved into an eclectic mix of art and documentary photography. I love to “catch the vibe” in new locations, capturing an image or series of images spontaneously. Back in my studio, imagery then becomes an artistic rendering of city/land/streetscapes, architectural details, textures, entropy, patina, and “street” portraits. Each photograph is processed individually, uniquely. All are natural light, documentary-style, captured moments (not “staged”) - reality with a twist. “Profiles of Cuba” is a new portfolio of my recent journey to Havana, Trinidad, and Vinales, Cuba [March 2011]. This series is a photographic “profile” of the structures and places and people of this remarkable country. All are natural light, documentary-style, captured moments (not “staged”) - reality with a twist. See city/land/streetscapes, architectural details, textures and patinas, and “street” portraits, including five award-winning images from the Prix de la Photographie Paris [PX3] 2011 competition.
