While an engineering student at Tufts, I had my first experience with
placing a sheet of exposed paper into the darkroom developer bath and
seeing the crisp image emerge. If not before, I was surely hooked then.
Explore the growing selection of images here including both black and
white and color prints from my travels across the United States as well
as my former home town of Boston.

Most of the images included here are either direct slide/film scans of
35mm Fuji Reala chromes or Kodak Tri-X b&w negatives or flatbed scans of
my b&w hand-done prints on Ilford paper. Lately, I've been shooting mostly
Fuji Press 400 & 800 35mm and NPZ 120 color negative film. While I've used
many cameras over the years, I now shoot mostly with a Canon Elan IIe,
ocassionaly an old A-1, a Mamiya 645 medium format SLR as well as some
digital color images with a Toshiba PDR-M4.
