I grew up in the Midwest, son of parents who appreciated beauty, curiosity, excellence and the creative process – values which continue to inform my life. But neither had an inclination for technology or the physical sciences, so, perhaps as a form of rebellion unaware, I found my way into physics and eventually joined Eastman Kodak as an exploratory researcher. It was there that photography and the underlying technology became vehicles for living out the values I had learned.
My Kodak career path followed my curiosity – from physics, chemistry and engineering to organization development and cross-cultural education and training. Upon leaving Kodak, I spent four years in southern Mexico, working with a marginalized community organizing a micro-credit cooperative. I returned to the land of four seasons and began building a life together with my wife, Louise, in our home on Lake Ontario.
My photographic work, then, is a kind of journal, documenting the beauty of road taken – an exploration of nature’s details, land- and cityscapes, lake and sky, and (of course) children and grandchildren. I capture images with the Canon 10D, prepare the images for printing in PhotoShop and print on an Epson 2200 with archival inks.
