Smith College Photos were taken during 1991-1994. All have high resolution and may be purchased as prints (please click on "Smith Photos"). A selection is offered as Note Cards. 12 Folded Note Cards will have the photograph you choose on the outside, and a blank inside for your note (please click on "Smith Note Cards" ). All Smith photos were taken using film and a Nikkormat FTN SLR camera (1960s vintage).
10% of proceeds from all Smith photo and card purchases will be donated to Smith College Scholarships.
The other collections: "Look Out: Windows, Doors, Porches"; "Diner"; "Portraits"; and "Neighborhood/Kids/City" are a mix of film and digital photography. All are available for sale as prints, except for Portraits. I am available for commission work, please leave a message if interested.
About the collections and me
The collections this site are a mix of architecture, portraits, landscape, and more. The "Smith College" Photos might appeal to Smith alumnae, faculty, graduating seniors, and those who like architectural photography.
"Look Out": is a collection of views from windows, doors, and porches throughout New England. I love the way doors suggest both an opening and separation, and the way views are framed by windows and doors. And, I love porches as an opening, a transition, and, of course, a spot to read, sit and chat, watch, interact with the weather while protected, interact with the street & neighbors. "Diner" began from a photo taken during a research trip to the FDR library archives - I ate breakfast at the Eveready diner every morning, and, oddly, it is the only thing I photographed while in Hyde Park, NY. More diners, another iconic form of architecture, are being added. "Portraits" are all of friends, and are not for sale, but I thought it would be fun to show them. I think the best portraits are not formal, but relaxed and interactive, an attempt to show some of the individual's personality. Also here are Neighborhood, Kids, City, etc; and the start of a collection of Sculling/ Head of the Charles photographs and City Street Scenes.
I live in Cambridge, MA, a few blocks from the house in which I was born, and expect to stay here. If you like the portrait work, or other images, I am available to work locally (within a 1-2 hour drive of Cambridge, leave a message by using the comment button or the guest book, include your email.)
My formal training is in American History and Government, Public Policy, and Policy History. Previously, I have also been an offset printer, a building superintendent, a boat builder, sold and repaired bicycles, made medical instruments with a plastic extruder, coached, competed in sculling, was a development director for non-profit organizations and political candidates, consultant, and I have written about and taught political science and public policy.
