I love macro abstract work of rejected and neglected items in our society, especially rusty old dumpsters (skips) around the back of...

A camera is a tool for learning how to see without a camera” – Dorothea Lange That is how I feel about my work as a photographer. It is teaching me to see things I never saw before I started photographing them.
For the past few years I have concentrated on macro photography. It gives me great pleasure to find beauty and inspiration in the discards of our society – a derelict car, an abandoned warehouse, a rusted can, a dying tree. These overlooked items take on new life and inspire me to look for beauty where it is least expected. I do enjoy travelling and shooting the locals and their culture also.

Both are dumpsters. / / From my current Art Show where I have …

My biggest and most exciting Art Show to date!!

I am so excited and proud to let my RB friends know that I have a two month show in the Gallery in City Hall here in my city. I am exhibiting with another photographer (whose work I did not know before this). This was a juried selection, and we were selected from a large number of photographers and artists who submitted work last year – I was stunned and amazed to find I had been chosen. …
