I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. Growing up, I spent my summers in Greenport, NY. It was there that I started connecting to the natural world. Later in life, this connection explains the direction my photography has taken.
When I finished school, I taught science to children in grades pre-k to grade five in Brooklyn NY for the next thirty-eight years. Upon retiring, I finally decided to do something I always wanted to do. I started making photographs.
For the past nine years, I have been honing my photographic skills. I consider myself primarily a Long Island based landscape photographer who explores other subject matter as well, including deconstructed architecture, shipyard artifacts and animals in context.
I want my photography to be a work in progress. I embrace the fact that my work is still evolving.
The eight images presented in “Overlooked” represent trees that I passed by many times but not really noticed. An important part of my workflow as a photographer includes visiting the same location over and over and over and over, again. Each time I return, I notice a new and interesting aspect of the place. My vision is affected by the light, the weather or just how I am feeling at that moment in time. What I wish to convey to the viewer determines whether or not I create my images in black and white or color.
It is my hope that you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed creating them.
