“Train Crossing Northern Montana”


I look to find the unseen — an unseen relationship in an ordinarily seen place, an ordinarily unseen place, a seen place at an unseen time.


I began in photography at age 8, developing roll film in a tray. My first job was as a photojournalist at a newspaper in Massachusetts. After detours into journalism writing, television producing at PBS and CBS and teaching in eastern Europe, I have settled into photography, and I’m now based in a village in eastern France. My work is seen in The Economist (London), other magazines and newspapers, and in a new Chinese encyclopedia.
