the photographs on this web site have been taken by me,
except of course those that feature me. In fact, those must have
been the more difficult ones. I was there. I know.
for the rest, I can assure you that they would not be what they
are without that last dab on the nose, the ‘just a
moment’ flick of the finger through the hair, that reflector
‘half inch to the left please’. Stark as some of
the images may seem I can still see coffee cups lying in there.
Silent as some of the pictures are, I can still hear some
of the debates in there. I can see a lot of hands, feet,
elbows, minds and voices in there that you probably can't.
for those young photographers who are taught that photography
is all about light and composition alone, well, they are wrong.
those names that I might overlook in appreciation of their contribution
here below, please sign the guest book. Nothing is more exciting
