About: I am a working artist living in Oakland, California. I make images by way of a camera selecting tonal relationships to my feelings. I am drawn to portraiture. Black and white film processing and printing in the darkroom are my ways of bringing the final image to life. Making portraits is an exciting way to connect with people. While I have the honor of having an individual before the lens, my goal is merging with the medium. These images I chose represent my black and white work that expresses my empathy to the Black Male in portraiture.
Most recent juried exhibits of my work include: Berkeley Civic Center Art Exhibition, 2019-Current; “In Focus: Current Photography”, Richmond Art Center, 2018; “The Capture of Life Absent from Color”, Joyce Gordon Gallery, 2014; “Seeing Berkeley”, Berkeley Rent Stabilization Board, 2015- commissioned and purchased; “Dis/Order”, Juried Annual 2013, Pro Arts, Oakland, California.
