I began working with photography in the 1970’s as a means of personal expression. My interests quickly evolved into an exploration of sacred and vernacular architecture, with an emphasis on pre-industrial illumination. Other areas of interest have been extended time exposure/motion studies, landscape and still life studies.
This pursuit has taken me to the cave monasteries in Southern Italy, Sicily and Anatolia, medieval architecture in Spain and Portugal, the megalithic temples on the island of Malta, Mayan temples on the Yucatan Peninsula, and the great Ottoman mosques in Istanbul, as well as Native American ceremonial sites and ancient rock art in the American Southwest and Mexico.
I approach my subject matter, sacred architecture, sacred places, sacred space, wherein light is a symbol of the transcendent, as a metaphor for the unknowable. Additionally, with my still life photographs, my intent is to reveal objects in the drama of light. My images are an autograph, sculpted in light in which the depth and spirit of man’s attempts at self-definition through matter, form and luminosity is revealed.
