My images are mainly landscapes of New England, the Southwest, and Great Britain (where I lived for many years). During my career as a professor of anthropology, photography had been a professional tool -- producing a record of the lives and habitat of the people I studied. Retirement opened another avenue -- to use photography to develop an aesthetic and artistic awareness. My photographic training was done at the New England School of Photography where I studied fine art photography with Nick Johnson, and in master classes in the West and Southwest with Bruce Barnbaum and Don Kirby. I was born in Lansing, Michigan, attended Michigan State (BA), Boston University (MA), and the University of Rochester (Ph.D). I have been a professor at Union College, the University of Houston, Johns Hopkins University, and the University of Manchester (UK) and I have held visiting professorships at the University of Rochester, Brown University, and Harvard University.
