About me

Welcome and thank you for viewing these pages. I became serious about photography 5 years ago. It has become an essential way for me to experience life as an active rather than passive participant. I practice it whenever I can outside my demanding career as a chemistry faculty.

Photography for me is a continuing process of discovery, initiated by each familiar click of the shutter button. With light as the primary medium, capturing and shaping it begins a meditative journey during which images develop into a reflection of the people, animals, or places I have interacted with. The images on this site are the fruit of an often long process of optimizing tones, colors, and sharpness, without artificially changing the true essence of a scene.

My travels have provided me with the chance to deepen my understanding of the world, a quest that continues and which I hope goes well beyond any preconceived notions I hold. I hope with this site to share an intimate view of aspects of our world that are much more positive than our current media culture tends to project.
