As a photographer and film maker, I self-classify as an “advanced amateur”. Currently my focus is gallery exhibitions, print photography, live streaming, and documentary film. My home gallery is the Arts League of Lowell. I also have a close association with the Jaffrey Civic Center.
A degree in mathematics led to my career in engineering and engineering management. Photography has been an interest of mine for some time, but my career had priority. Now retired, I am able to spend much more time with photography and film.
In 2022 I was awarded first place in photography at the Westford Regional Art Event. I was Artist of the Month for October 2022 at the Parish Center for the Arts in Westford, Massachusetts. That exhibit featured 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.
I am a member of the Arts League of Lowell, Jaffrey Civic Center, the Chelmsford Art Society, and the Photographic Society of America.
