As long as I can remember Black and White Photography has always fascinated me. Over the years it has become a passion of mine. I've always been an admirer of Ansel Adam's work. I can remember when i worked at the School of Art Gallery at Kent State University. One day as I was cleaning up the art bins I came across an signed Ansel Adams Photograph. I was excited at my discovery. As I looked through the adjacent bins, I found a Minor White, a Stieglitz and a few others. To be able to actually hold them in my hands was amazing to me. I had always admired Black and White Photography, but to actually hold one of these amazing. From that point on, Black and White Photography has been my passion. It is my hope that the love I have for this genre comes through in my work, enjoy.
