Photography of the Landscape
the Leelanau peninsula, near and around the villages of Northport and Leland, Michigan, and rural Michigan,
as well as other
Landscapes, places in time, that I have found myself with a camera.
I began to photograph neighborhoods of my home town, and the architectural environment of Ann Arbor in the mid-70’s. Moving on to New Orleans, La., in 1977, after having left school, I became involved with the documentation and photography of historic New Orleans architecture.
This is where urban/ landscape imagery began to take form, an approach to photography at the street level, documenting the urban environment from a pedestrian perspective. A conscious, but free form effort, of looking at those elements that make up our surroundings. At times it is simply a constructivist approach to composition, at other times it is an opportunity to see things as they are, and how everything around those objects, simply create form and structure within the frame of the image. I met Clarence John Laughlin many times, until finally he would have a look at a couple photographs of mine. First thing he did was turn them upside down, and then sit there for a while, and then maybe say, i get it. Once he told me, as it relates to photography, and surealism, that “reality is stranger than fiction”, and once in a while I look at a photograph of mine, and i get it.
I have read more recently, somewhere, the pursuit of an image is about the “suspension of reality”.
I like that, after all, isn’t a photograph about the suspension of time and space in an instant, and from that point on, that time and space will never be the same.

Upon my return home in 1985, and now, after many years of photographing Ann Arbor, the Leelanau penninsula in northern Michigan, Amsterdam and Venice, the pursuit of color and structure within an image has evolved.
And now that we have all gone digital, it is a whole new ball game…….
