Medium: Photography.

I use only existing light and approach my photography in a non-intrusive way. I look at life a few feet at a time. I lean toward sculptural and “form”-based subjects. I look for hidden works of art produced by nature.

I am heavily influenced by many mid-20th century masters such as Minor White, Paul Strand, and Edward Weston.

Art is all around us, many times in close proximity, but sometimes in unexpected places. I try to see “outside the box” of conventional perception. Photography has had a profound affect on my way of life. I am infinitely more in tune with my surroundings as a result.

    I bought a serigraph from Kenn Briner at an outside art show in Maui, 2002 of the Twin Towers. He told me about how he and his brother visited the twin towers in April 2001. He laid on the ground and told his brother, ‘These are our pyramids’.
    I didn’t see my photograph titled World Trade Center, NY NY#58/100 Series 1 April 2001on your site. Is he still active and in Maui?
    I need to visit again soon!
    Best regards,
