While living in London from 1989 to 1991, I was thrilled to find out about the Appleby Horse Fair. The Gypsy and Traveller communities in England fascinated me. I knew little about their culture other than they were a unique and historically nomadic people. I hoped that by photographing what was believed to be the largest traditional Gypsy/Traveller event in Europe, I would learn more about their distinct way of life and be able to share it with others.
Street Photography in general has changed over the years, we have seen a lot of changes. Recently the most obvious one is the change to daily life from the existing pandemic outbreak. And our ever-changing world, cities, as well as global circumstances are also transforming street photography. I feel every image is a reflection of our era's ever-changing visual culture.
At the end of the 20th century, no more than three bears lived in the whole Alps: they were three males that were even too old to reproduce. Since the second half of the nineteenth century the bear has been the victim of a wild hunt aimed at the annihilation of the species from the Alps: under the Austrian government, bounties were imposed on the head of every killed bear.

The Patina Collection is an assemblage of gilded prints in the 'States of Grace' series paired with antique frames - the synthesis of 40 years of collecting turn-of-the-twentieth-century art and objects and creating images inspired by my spiritual connection to graceful organic forms. The serpentine shapes are echoed in the subjects I photograph and the Art Nouveau and Arts & Crafts period frames that complement these works.
While in Africa, I became fascinated with the tribes living along the Lower Omo River in Ethiopia going there several times with Steve Turner of Origins. Most of the tribes are pastoral, others are nomads moving with the seasons along the river. Some tribes are in danger of extinction.

During the 2020 Covid summer there were daily political protests in Portland, Oregon. Many turned violent. I attended a rather mellow rally at the sports field next to the King Elementary School in north Portland - it was a Saturday afternoon in July. There were a group of five men on a hill above the field who were sitting in an area where there are four picnic tables, and from afar I thought that they might agree to be photographed.
