B.S. in Photography, Institute of Design at the Illinois Institute of Technology

Bio: I studied photography with Aaron Siskind at the Institute of Design in Chicago. Then at the Art Institute, I began an exploration of multiple imagery that has been part of my current work. For 35 years, I have explored image making, seeking relationships between process and image.

Interests: Although most of my experience is with traditional silver B & W photography, I have worked with Palladium and Cyanotype hand coated emulsions, novelty cameras such as the Diana, Holga and Nimslo, video cameras and an office scanner as a camera. I began exploring computer image making around 1985 and have created several different series. My most recent project is shooting with a pinhole camera, ( 17th century optics ) and digitally altering the picture ( 21 century printing ).
