Mostly, I take the pictures I want to see.
I was brought up to revere the pre-revisionist history and 19th and 20th century landscape artists that formed Americans’ notions of the character of my native New England, and how it ought to look. I now work to synthesize those stories and influences with the effects of time and economic violence, and with the human longing for order and beauty.
Beauty without sentimentality is a goal of all my work.
