cropped-edeksphotoslogo.jpgSince 2016 my focus has been street photography in various forms. The challenge for me is to get close to  people and to capture them being uniquely human.  My street images are factual, edited only for color and contrast.

Earlier work dating to the 1980s includes a variety of subjects and I remain attached to my older images even though I like to think that I have become a better photographer. I still do some images that are not of the street because I can use them to  explore the world of editing and thoughtful creativity at the workstation. There is also a place for them in sales and competition since street photography is less accepted for those purposes.

Apropos of my street photography focus, my cover image is a photo looking north up Ashland Avenue at the 2500 block in front of the house where I was raised in Chicago. It was taken in 1945, the year I was born. When I restored the image I was amazed by the detail available in the old black and white negative.

I am flexible about allowing my images to be used, but you must contact me for permission.
