In the News and Re-introducing Barbie

Last week I attended the opening of the St. Louis Crime Victims' Rights Week Art Exhibit, Extending the Vision, Reaching Every Victim at the Vaughn Cultural Center.
     One of my photographs, Spiral Aloe, was included in the show which presented art as a healing source. I was honored to be a part of this exhibition and hope my photograph brought a moment of peace to someone who deserved it.

Barbie's back and this time she means business. Due to renewed interest in the Barbie portraits, I am re-introducing the Barbie Doll Portrait Project blog. Posts will feature fine art limited edition images from the Bruno David Gallery show, When Is A Doll, Not A Doll. A new photo will be exhibited online every two weeks.
     Welcome back Barbie and pass the word along.

Botanica - Part Seventeen

As much as I keep experimenting with new concepts and collections in my photography, I always come back to botanical images as a source of pure, naturally simplistic design.

In the News - Pyramids of Saint Louis

Recently I garnered a spot on the American Public Media website On Being. My entry in the segment, First Person: Your Voices, Your Stories, tells how
I developed an interest in the world of fine art photography after a memorable trip to California.
     The photo shown is Pyramids of Saint Louis and is available as a limited edition print through The Bruno David Gallery. This is one of my favorite photos because of its visual appeal and chance composition. (click image to enlarge)

Earlier this week we learned that our cat of 18+ years had a cancerous mass in her chest, along with arthritis in her spine and an unexplained limp rear paw. We made the humane decision to let her go.
     A lot happens in 18 years and Maggie was a constant companion; especially on a daily basis when she would follow me into my office and take her seat for the day.
