As a photographer I self-classify as an “advanced amateur”. This is after humbling experiences dabbling in professional photography. Still, I love photography and have for a long time. 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.
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.
My bicycle touring blog is Edek’s Attic.
