I started taking pictures in the early 1970s. My sister had an old Pentax that she never used, so I commandeered it and started to photograph everything. It was not until I saw the work of W. Eugene Smith that it hit me, the so called “bug.” “A Walk To The Paradise Garden” to the Pittsburgh Photographs but, especially “A Madwoman in a Haitian Clinic” blew me away. I knew at that point I wanted to take pictures of people, in black & white. I have expanded my passion to include all types of photography, but my heart belongs on the street.
This site is for all the people I have photographed over the past 40 years. . . and for you.
