Photography History

While engaged in other careers I learned photography, at times exhibiting my work and offering it for acquisition.   Selected exhibitions included  Fuller Art Museum and Photography Place, Philadelphia with work in at group shows such as at the Addison Gallery of American Art in Andover, MA and Rugg Road Papers Gallery in Boston.

As I expanded the range of photography to include cyanotypes and artist books I realized that it was time to follow my dream and become a painter.
