I was brought up to revere the pre-revisionist history that formed Americans' notions of the character of my native New England and how it ought to look. In response, I seek to create authentic regional art that acknowledges, celebrates, and often monkeys with the visual tropes I grew up with. Mostly, though, I take the pictures I want to see.
Beauty without sentimentality is a goal of all my work. B. 1956, raised Portsmouth, NH. Self-directed arts education. Photographing since childhood, in deadly earnest since 2009. My wife Jodie and I live in Portland, ME. Reach me at festoonic2 at yahoo dot com.
