Thoughts

 

My photographic work unfolds in cycles thorough-out the year: Spring and summer— shooting and processing film on location; autumn and winter—darkroom printing, presentational preparation for exhibitions, and proposal writing.

“On location”, for the last six years means I travel to Greece, a land which has inspired numerous photographs and many pages of stories. Out in the field, narratives start flowing freely both visual and literary. In addition to countless rolls of film, I have many books filled with stories, observations, and photo notations.

I am bringing these stories to my website not to illustrate my photographs, but to share the rich experiences I have encountered on the road. You will read about the rigors of exploration, the people I meet, the customs and cultural nuances that I learn more about each year. My struggles speaking the Greek language, the adventures of night shooting, camping out, and mountain climbing.

I hope you enjoy these stories which will move forward and back in time as I transcribe them from notebooks to computer. Check back in often—I will be adding new entries frequently.
