For more than 40 years I had been primarily an urban black-and-white photography artist and photography instructor, walking through the city studying the visual effect of natural light across objects, people and scenes. The city inspired me, driving my art with every new person I met, every new item I encountered, and every street I walked.
Not much has changed, since 2014, except everything outside my door. Two years ago, I moved to Middle River, Maryland. Unsurprisingly, my work has taken a turn toward the pastoral. My streets are now footpaths and I see more animals than people. I am now inspired by the way the forest cuts the sky, the change of seasons on the river, and the rich visual variety of an area I call the Middle River Moors.
