I live and work in southern Ontario, Canada. My roots are in black and white film photography and silver gelatin printing. Today I work with digital cameras and inkjet printers instead of film. However, two things have stayed constant for me during the past decades: I still work exclusively in black and white, and I still think of the print as the final form for my art.
In making photographs, I look for tones, textures, shapes patterns, lines and forms that are suited to monochrome images, and I watch for small details that are easily overlooked. I find what I'm looking for in nature and in built environments, often in my own backyard.
