Severely infected by the shutterbug at the innocent age of
15, the disease progressed quickly and steadily as I later became
a high school yearbook staff photographer and also worked in
industrial color separation. While attending Colorado State
University my mind was supposed to be on Chemistry and Physics
but my heart was with a Leica camera. Switching careers to the
electronics field for the next 35 years there was a mild remission
of my condition, but a Pentax nodule failed to completely dissolve.
In the very late 1900s I suffered a total relapse, falling into
a chronic, indeed abject case of what I call "photoneurosis".
There is no hope for my recovery. I stubbornly refuse any treatment
for this condition! That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Beauty is abundant for those who look for it. In the strenuous
endeavor to formulate an appropriate artist's statement, I find
that I am striving for a fundamentally necessary understanding
of an objective ontology of aesthetic value.
All works rendered with archival pigments on canvas to the
highest Giclée standard.
