Ephemera
Recently released!.

Ephemera is a highly personal selection of black and white photographs taken over four decades.

Many of the images suggest that life at the end of the 20th and beginning of the 21st centuries looks much like it did during the 18th and 19th centuries.

Progress does not travel through the world at a constant speed.

Inkblot

Who are these people? Who took their picture? Why was their picture taken? When the answers to these questions are not forthcoming, it's probably because they are vernacular photographs. Only a very few of people in Inkblot are identifiable; vernacular photography is the antithesis of celebrity photography. With many of these images, the joy is simply allowing them to move you, without analysis. Others impel interpretation.

Black and Light

 

Truth and Beauty

Truth and Beauty is a collection of vernacular images meant to suggest an emotional and mental roller coaster; there is no overriding polemic though my predilections and prejudices of course are very evident. Because the images are collected at flea markets and on line in a way that engenders a certain randomness, in my editing I try to recreate that randomness.
