In my high school yearbook I am quoted as saying I “plan on being a lawyer and love photography” and what follows helps to show I have lived my childhood dream. My love for photography started as a teenager when I built a darkroom in the basement of my row home and continued through college, law school, four years as an Assistant District Attorney for the City of Philadelphia, and over forty-five years of active practice of law. As a self taught photographer, over the years my devotion to photography and skill has continued to grow and evolve with my eyes constantly seeking subject matter that demonstrates expressions of life and people, young and aged, along with the environment in which we make our lives, at times pleasant, and at other times sad. Hopefully the photographs and material that follows will give you evidence of my skills and feelings for the world that we are a part of as well as tell you a little of who I am.
- For nine years I have been a volunteer teaching photography at inner-schools of Philadelphia, six of these nine years at Clara Barton, the elementary school I attended as a child.
- I have been a winner of numerous awards at juried shows in international, national and local competition. The most recent have been at the ninth annual “Photography Exposition” at the Tyme Gallery in Havertown Pennsylvania and Photo 612 in Haddon Heights, NJ. In international competition I have won awards from the ARTROM Gallery and the Annual International Print Center of Philadelphia competition and my work has been featured in the catalogue of the Key West Literary Seminar.
- During these last ten years my work has been displayed in numerous venues, I have had a one man show, published one book of photography and I am currently working on books of photographs taken after two trips to both Cuba and Sisley.
I look forward to hearing from you.
