For only a short period in my life have I lived more than 60 miles from the coast, often much closer. Home for me now is on Boston’s South Shore, a region that extends south and east from Boston, along the shore of Massachusetts Bay towards Cape Cod. While this region extends from Quincy to Plymouth, my true playground is the towns of Cohassett, Scituate, Marshfield and Duxbury. It is here that I spend most of my free time, swimming in the ocean, collecting rocks and looking for rare beach glass.
I am drawn to intimate landscapes and abstract images that are informed by the work of many of the giants of landscape photography, although the work of Eliot Porter resonates most deeply with me. Unlike Eliot Porter however, I use a small format camera and where Porter would have exposed few frames I expose many. Making many images of a single subject to achieve a final successful image allows me to connect with my subject. I see it as very much akin to having a conversation and I am happy to go where that conversation leads me. I hope you will join me to find out.
