I hope that my photographs will help make the world fresh for you in some way. I’ve been composing images since I was 6 years old, encouraged by my father who was a professional photographer. My preferred themes are urban decay, social commentary, and abstractions from Nature.
My most recent photo show was at Renzo’s Café on Commercial Drive. It was entitled “Swimmers and Floaters” and presented a bird’s eye view of swimmers in Kits Pool. In 2021, Swan Catcher Press published a book of my work called “Seeing Ghosts”. This collection of black and white photos and ekphrastic poems invokes a dreamlike “ghost city”, abstracted from the everyday reality of Vancouver.
