“We are not gods, we cannot ascend to heaven.
No, we are mortal men. Only the gods live forever.
Our days are few in number, and whatever we achieve is a puff of wind.
Why be afraid then, since sooner or later death may come?
… I will cut down the tree; I will kill Humbaba; I will make a lasting name for myself;
I will stamp my fame on men’s minds forever.”
Gilgamesh – The Epic of Gilgamesh, 2000 BCE.
During the past few years I have chronologically arranged the negatives, prints, slides and digital files of more than 50 years of photography into a manageable, easily viewed database.
My history in photography began when I was eight years old.
Studying these photographs as a personal history has led me to an understanding of why I create. My work both presents this idea and at the same time serves as an example of it.
In tracing my physical and spiritual development I have become aware of the idea that the history of a unit, be it organic or inorganic, reflects the history of life and the cosmos.
I invite you to select a project from the menu above or from the sidebar.
There are over 2000 photographs divided into several projects and albums.
Take your time and I hope you enjoy.
