“The illiterate of the future will be the person ignorant of the use of the camera as well as the pen.” László Moholy-Nagy, 1927
Photography is the most powerful and pervasive visual medium in our culture. Sound like an exaggeration? It’s not. Photography fills our art galleries, our magazines, our newspapers, our books, and is integral to the Internet. Photos are on the cereal box you pick up in the morning, and 0n the television you shut off at night. They are used in our court rooms, by NASA, by medical imaging, by dentists, by scientist, and by the Army… the list is endless. Yeah, photography rules. And with cameras a standard feature on every cell phone, the presence of photography is exploding.
Hey, check out this van! I took this picture over ten years ago, on Martha’s Vineyard. Amazing vehicle, right? Wouldn’t want to be driving behind it on the highway; it probably spits cameras now and then. See the one-way mirror windows on the side? There is no doubt in my mind that behind them was a photographer – photographing me, photographing him. Wow. And with the van wearing California plates, I had to think that this monkey business of dueling cameras had taken place all the way across our country. Photography is everywhere. Click..click……click!
Below you can find pathways to my landscapes and personal work. Open either page and look for additional links to specific photography portfolios. Those portfolios are in Adobe PDF format. Most folks already have the free Abode Acrobat Reader downloaded on their laptop. If you want to open the portfolios on your cell phone, however, you’ll a need PDF reader app. There are free downloads, available for both Apple and Android.
