I photograph people because they fascinate me.

Portraits, to make them look great, and to stop time. So they and other people can look at then down the road and to see them as they were.

Photojournalism, to make a statement, either their statement or mine.

I rarely do scenics but I love to look at old pictures of places that are no longer there or have changed considerably.

I think I have a melancholy approach to photography, and perhaps to life. I think I'm trying to stop time.
