Water-shields And Oak Leaf


I have tried for decades to keep this website current. In addition to my photographs and other images it reflects philosophy and thinking about life and about the role of art in life. This may be appropriate or not, but all of it is inextricably bound by my view of life, especially as it has evolved in my later years. (I will turn 80 on 9/11/2021). Its progress has been slowed by a full two-year hiatus devoted at more than full-time to global warming. How I expected it to ever change the world I don’t know, but as an engineer once response for product liability I have an overwhelming desire to fix things. Our former president doomed any possibility of my accomplishing anything worthwhile.

In the meantime, despite no longer being able to carry a view camera my creative work has continued, especially in the categories of mélanges and LightSongs®. Also, my 20,000 transparencies still are not completely reviewed and I have added considerable new work. Put all of this together and you have something “behind schedule” which means at least typos and spelling (these html/css boxes do not correct spelling so I must do that as a separate chore).


All galleries have FULL SCREEN slide shows running constantly.

Put your cursor in the LOWER RIGHT HAND CORNER OF THE GALLERY and two small arrows will appear . Click on these for FULL SCREEN (nothing but image and black) with any browser. Click ESCAPE to return to normal viewing.

Dye Transfer Prints

From 1978 until 1994 I made my prints by the DYE TRANSFER PROCESS which for many decades was considered the ultimate in color printing processes and is still considered so by many.

It was not until 2005 that digital printing became acceptable and that is how I print now.

As I prepare my photographic work for a permanent home I am making available for sale the last of the dye transfer prints that will not be included in my archive.
