By the Sea
Why photographic seascapes? Again, going back to my interest in the Social Sciences, the sea is a link to our heritage. In an instant, you're photographing something that was and is, all at the same time.
The sea itself is a great mystery to me. It is blue (an odd thing for a black and white photographer to take note of), free, innocent, graceful, powerful, gentle, and unforgiving. It will belong to no one, yet man continually struggles to control it. The sea, however, will overcome and outlast us all. It is a constant that continually transforms itself.
I am delighted to have several of my Nova Scotia landscapes in the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia collection. Also, my "Chappy Cabanas and Edgartown Light" photograph was on loan to the American Embassy in Kuwait, as part of the U.S. Department of State's Art in Embassies program.
