I believe in community. I went to college because that is what you are supposed to do. I studied Communications because I wanted to be a radio DJ but learned radio is not about the music. I had a horrible time in my life during which I worked at the Tax Collector’s office. After reading the novel Jayber Crow by Wendell Berry I had a short career as a barber. My wife and I moved to California and I studied photography at Brooks Institute while she supported me. She is a wonderful person and a great librarian. I was fortunate enough to have a job at the school’s gallery and learned to love the photographic print. Now I attempt to promote community through photography.
I believe our salvation is in community and that we are supposed to live with one another, not alone.
I believe in photography and I love photobooks.
