Reboot 2018: The Intersection of “What Is” and “What If”

If you’ve been following this blog, you might have noticed that I’ve been on hiatus for the past four months.  During that time, I’ve been regrouping as I expand my work from traditional photography into abstracts and composites. It took me a while to get comfortable with the idea of taking and making images of…

    Recap: H20 Extremes Exhibition

    For those of you who attended the reception for my “H20 Extremes” exhibition, hosted by Drinkwater’s Cambridge, many thanks. For those who couldn’t, here’s a multimedia recap (see below). The exhibition juxtaposed photos of Death Valley with images of Iceland. The extreme water part of the show concluded with images of the world as seen…

      A Tale of Two Desert Experiences

      She Loves Me: When Mother Nature Shines Favorably… Back in February, when I visited Death Valley and the surrounding desert areas, I didn’t realize how fortunate I was that the weather cooperated  perfectly. During the day, the temperature was mainly in the low 70s. At night, the thermometer dipped down to the mid-forties and then to…

        Water at Drinkwater’s: H20 Extremes Exhibit

        I’m pleased to announce my upcoming exhibit, “H20 Extremes.” The show juxtaposes images devoid of water—such as those taken in Death Valley—with photographs that feature water in abundance. The latter include images of the Jökulsárlón Glacial Lagoon in Iceland and, much closer to home, close up shots of raindrops collecting on spider web filaments and…

          Gear Note: Back Saver, File Saver

          MINDSHIFT GEAR CAMERA BACKPACKI rarely write much about camera gear, but I’m particularly excited about two photography products I used during my trip to Death Valley in February. Both helped make the adventure especially enjoyable and productive. (Note: neither of the items were provided for review by their respective manufacturers.) First, there’s the MindShift Gear…

            Sun, Sand, and Solitude

            This month marked another annual father/son sojourn of sun, sand, and solitude. Our 2018 trip took us far from winter’s gloomy cold grip on the Northeast to a place with blazing sun and delicious 80-degree temperatures: the desert. My son Noah and I traveled from Las Vegas to Death Valley National Park, then made our…

              Matters of Scale: A Photo Exhibition

              For me, nothing is quite as gratifying as seeing my photographic work framed, matted, and on display for the world to see. Recently, I‘ve had the opportunity to do this with 14 images from my portfolio. They’re hanging on the walls of Simon’s—a cozy little café in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The exhibition is called “Matters of…

                A Chilly Goodbye to 2017

                If 2018 were the year of the Dragon, not the year of the Dog, I’d be especially excited about the image below. To my eye, anyway, the subject of the photo resembles a fanciful beast. From right to left, see the head, body, and tail? ICE + ZEISS = NICE!The “dragon” photo is actually a…

                  Let It Snow! (in New York City)

                  There’s nothing like wind-driven snow to create intriguing photo opportunities in New York. Last weekend’s storm, which coincided with a brief family visit to the City, did not disappoint. (It also gave me a great chance to test the mettle of my weather-resistant Fuji XT2 body and lenses.) I spent most of the morning on…

                    Fall Roundup

                    For those of you who’ve been reading my blogs, you’ve heard me say that no matter where you live, there’s no shortage of fascinating subjects and compositions. Sometimes they’re literally in our backyards; other times they’re just down the road. The key to finding them is to be receptive and observant. This fall has not…
