Artist Statement

My photographs aim to show the world as a visually fascinating and beautiful place. Often the beauty of an object or scene is self evident, but at other times the inherent splendor is only revealed by peering closely into the component parts, or by viewing the object from a different vantage point or in a different light. I would like the observer to see what I saw and feel what I felt.   As a former professor of surgery, photography has always interested me. As a surgeon I learned the importance of paying attention to detail which I have applied to my intricate photographs. Since my retirement from medicine, I have focused seriously on photography's technical and visual aspects.   My award winning photographs have been exhibited widely throughout the Northeast, including the Salmagundi Club and other galleries in NY, the Mamaroneck Artist Guild, and the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC.  My photographs can also be found in many commercial establishments and in numerous private collections.

Educational Background

I studied at the International Center for Photography and with several professional photographers in the New York area.
