I got my first Brownie as a boy. I poographed in Brooklyn,NY, and Manhattan, but I had aspirations for leica, which I purchased after my first employment as a chemist. After several years I moved up to a 4x5 Deardorf, and was doing landscapes. Lately I have sold the large format equipment and switched to digital imaging. In competions I have won several awards, including 7th place in the 5oth year of the Leica anniversary international competition.
