As a photographer I self-classify as an “advanced amateur”. My current focus is gallery exhibitions and print photography. My home gallery is the Arts League of Lowell. Street photography is the genre that I have come to love. I combine street photography with bicycle touring, business travel, and vacation travel. Photo hikes in Boston are a major source of subject matter.
Way back in time my degree in mathematics led to a career in engineering and engineering management. Now retired, I have the time to pursue the interest in photography that predates my degree and my career. My Grandmother gave an Ansco ReadyFlash camera to me when I was eleven years old and that stimulated my interest in photography.
The Westford Regional Art Event 2022 judge awarded first place in photography to me for a print that I had in the exhibit. I was Artist of the Month for October 2022 at the Parish Center for the Arts in Westford, Massachusetts. The exhibit showed prints from my collection of Boston street photos. The exhibit was titled “Love That Dirty Water”. Prints from “Love That Dirty Water” were selected by the curator to be displayed at Boston City Hall from April 18 to May 30, 2022. The prints were also shown at the Jaffrey Civic Center January 15 through February 26, 2022, and my solo show at the Arts League of Lowell from April to May, 2021.
My article Street Photography was published in the August 2021 issue of the Photographic Society of America Journal. Previously, I received First Place and Honorable Mention for two prints that I entered into the Exposed 2017: Shadow Play exhibition at the Arts League of Lowell. Several of my digital images have been accepted by international exhibitions. My work, some licensed by Creative Commons, has been used by non-profit organizations and I was a featured artist in the February 2017 issue of the online Literary Orphans magazine.
