I have been a photographer for most of my life. As a young child I began observing and recording life around me using a simple Brownie camera. Later, I added a Polaroid and a 35mm film camera. In college I was given access to a darkroom and began to develop and print my photos. When the world transitioned to digital photography, so did I, though I also continued to use film.
After retiring from a long career as a Public Defender in Paterson, NJ, I took film and digital photography classes at Montclair State University and also worked in the darkroom.
I am inspired to find new meanings in the urban landscapes and natural world that surround us. My photographs reflect my interpretation of the social and aesthetic realms of human experience.
I live in Montclair, New Jersey My photography has been exhibited at Studio Montclair and I have 4 works on permanent exhibition at the ADP Center for Learning Technologies at Montclair State University.
