ABOUT ME

BEHIND THE LENS

I started to explore photography seriously when I joined the Boston Camera Club about eight years ago. Photography lets me document the images of what I see every day.


Though I photograph in color, I produce mostly black and white imagery. I like to explore patterns, lines, and shapes of my photographic subjects. I find that black and white photography best expresses the underlying structure for my images. My work as a graphic designer and quilt maker influence how I look at a subject — details, texture, color, balance — and how I use these elements to create a photograph. I am drawn to subject matter in architecture and nature, but will photograph anything I find interesting to explore.
