I have been a photographer for 30 years and, currently live in Saint Louis, Missouri.

I am currently represented by the Bruno David Gallery in Saint Louis, Missouri.3721 Washington Blvd (in Grand Center) Saint Louis, MO 63108-3611 USA 1.314.531.3030 http://www.brunodavidgallery.com



I exhibited at the The sixth edition of the Florence Biennale of Contemporary Art which took place at the historic Fortezza da Basso from 1st - 9th December, 2007. http://www.florencebiennale.org


My photographs have been exhibited and sold by The Elliot Smith Gallery in St. Louis Missouri numerous times over the last several years.

I have also had one person shows at the Barbican in London, and La Dame Tartine in Paris and the Edwynn Houk Gallery in Chicago.

In addition I have had one person shows in banks and in St. Louis Botanical Garden.

I have participated in several workshops; for example, in the Rencontres d'Arles with Mary Ellen Mark, the Lisl Dennis workshop in Santa Fe, New Mexico; and worked with Ansel Adams in his workshop in Yosemite California.

I took Portaits for the St. Louis Post Dispatch Symphony Rotogravure section for serveral years and wrote and had published numerous travel articles with photographic images in that newspaper.

My work is displayed in public and private collection around the world, including the St. Louis Art Museum, the Biblioteque Nationale in Paris and Bryan Cave in St. Louis Missouri.

My recent work, the Venice carnival in 2000 and the two Gay Pride Parades in Paris, 2002 and 2003, are especially intriguing to me. They encompass my special interests--people enjoying themselves with others in an atmosphere of artifice, costume and masquerade.
