Projects and Portfolios
23 imagesI started collecting feathers, and a few eggs, several years ago. I wanted to photograph them, partly to preserve them, but also as a way of appreciating them better. As I worked on this series, I began to think of still-life photography in new ways. I even began to experiment with abstraction, and pretty soon the series began to take on a life of it's own. The only thing I can say for sure at this point, is that I will continue to add to this series.
35 imagesMy biggest pet project in the last couple of years has been to explore some of the natural areas in the San Francisco Bay Area - the parks, beaches, nature preserves. There is a lot of natural beauty hidden in our urban environment, and I completely took it for granted for many many years. Now, I am making an effort to learn about them, and find out what we are doing to preserve these natural areas. A centerpiece of this project is my series on the San Francisco Bay Trail. I don't have a car, so I haven't been able to get to all of the places I want to go yet, but I will get there eventually.
50 imagesA few years ago, I started doing a series of abstract photographs in places of worship. Well, I say places of worship, but most of the churches that are open to the public on a daily basis are Catholic churches. Nevertheless, I am very happy with some of the results of this series, and I hope you will enjoy them as well.
