About me
R.I.P. George Duke

Photographer, Author, Educator.
I don't shoot pictures, I make images. I like that the word "image" comes from the same root as "imagination." I'm interested in making compelling images of people that are about narratives or symbolic ideas.

*Ehem* Nothing you see in these portfolios is a "capture." Cameras, computers, droids, and Cylons can see captures. By the time it's a recognizable to we humans as an image, it's not a capture anymore; and that's even before we start talking about working any of the nuances of the image...
