Bio

I have always believed that my photographs say as much about me as what I am feeling or viewing. Throughout my life, I have always enjoyed the simple act of looking at things—watching people going about their business, working, dreaming, loving, alone in their thoughts, and immune from the outside world. I am attracted to that special moment when they are in harmony with their surroundings, pure, naked, unaware and honest. I prefer the viewer to, see these photos without captions so they may be free to insert their own personal interpretation or story into each photograph

 

 

I was born in Montreal, Québec, Canada in 1943 and studied fine art at l’ecole des Beaux Arts in Montreal. I became interested in becoming being a photographer after viewing the work of Robert Frank, Andre Kertez and Henri Cartier Bresson.

 

For 4 years, I studied with the Canadian photographer John Max and participated in a number of group shows and solo exhibits in Canada before moving to the United States in 1992 I now spend my time equally between West Palm Beach, Florida and Santa Fe, NM.

 

I am represented by Robin Rice Gallery in New York.
