My body of work is an accumulation of my life-time experience of photography, architecture and real estate, (a photographer and proprietor), all accomplished side-by-side over a period of 45 years.
I have several portfolios: painted architecture, mirrored image architectural studies, abstract views, multi-exposed images, sectional studies as sculptures, and more; see my website!
My photography career started in an industrial photo studio. I was assigned to shoot pavilions for the International Worlds Fair; Montreal’s Expo 67. Four years into this genre, I discovered fashion and advertising photography, all the while shooting for my personal interest of abstract graphic designs, and abstract views of architecture. At this time I wasn’t aware this was also a body of work. After thirty odd years, while living in Manhattan, I returned to architectural photography and its’ art.
For the last 10 years, while I ‘paint’ my architectural images, I shut down my analytical mind and allow my emotion and instinct to direct my ‘computer mouse’ brush. I paint not in a conventional way.
I oddly feel guilty for having so much fun in my new art career.
I have been influenced by working with ‘fine arts’ artists, architects, art directors and creative directors in advertising, as well as, my own life long studies and interests in the fine arts.
Photographers like ManRay, Alfred Stieglitz, and Alexander Rodchenko have had great influence on me, as well as painters like Wassily Kandinsky and Piet Mondrian.
During my life as a commercial photographer, I‘ve always had a feeling of wanting to pursue art as a career.
Now, I am living the change that I seek.
