Welcome to  new galleries of unmanipulated photography:

Close to Home
As the Virus limited movement, I found ways to continue to photograph by looking close by, around my property in Santa Fe, to capture
the results of images appearing in my birdbath. Sometimes water reflected images of sunlight on the surrounding walls, and sometimes ice formed into colorful, intricate patterns. Every day is a new opportunity to see what is right in front of me.

Light Enchantment
New Mexico is famous for light, clouds, and architecture. These elements deepen my captivation for colors that
announce themselves as shapes and shades on the ground, on walls, and into the open sky. My eye goes to what the scene has become through painting of light and shadow, even more so in these stay-at-home times.

Through the Looking Glass

This abstract series resulted from the realization that, while I can no longer go out among them, or even into town now to shoot as I used to, I could stay at home and still look at the world through cubed privacy glass windows installed in a few outside walls of our house in Santa Fe. So, in reflecting the Santa Fe skies and landscapes in surreal photographs that look manipulated but are completely real, I find a way to remain creatively connected to the surrounding world.

Digital manipulation is so common in photography today that it is probably important to note that my images are not created in this way, although some might appear to be. This series captures scenes that were the naked truth right in front of me. Certainly some reflections and bends of light contribute to the impression of alteration, but it is the coming upon and capturing these rare and unplanned scenes that is the immediate prize.


Although digitally captured, the content of my images is not manipulated. I shoot and present the real world, unposed and unstaged.


Influences include Randy Newman, Mark Twain, René Magritte, Margaret Atwood, David Hockney, William Trevor, Jeanne Gang, Rod Serling, Michael Josephson, Paul Simon, Emily Dickinson, Georgia O’Keeffe; but most importantly, the images that present themselves to me in the world are my influences.
