Biography: I enjoy visiting places for the first time, or the 31st time. My curiosity is like that of a child seeing for the first time. I am attracted to life and the serendipity of the moment. To quote Balzac, it is the 'Gastronomy of the Eye'.
I photograph with an old Leica. I use film. What you see in the photograph was before me when I framed it and pressed the shutter. Nothing has been manipulated digitally in any way. My photographs are silver gelatin, hand printed in the darkroom using traditional chemistry. Call it old school.
