I use the camera as tool to create a work of art, to make an art piece that reveals my vision and makes a statement of that vision rather than documenting the subject before the lens. Other manipulations, as needed to accomplish my goal are allowed.
Some work is super-spontaneous. Some images are a single photograph with a slight embellishment to accentuate a portion of the image. Others, a montage of elements.
Brought into art via a high school teacher who encouraged me to experiment within pop art, etc., at the age of 16.
Mentored by the famous landscape German photographer, Anton Kaiser in the early 70's.
Attended the Academy of Art College, San Francisco 1976 - 79.
Blah, blah, blah.
