PHOTOGRAPHIC CAREER

A self-taught photographer for the most part, I received a Kodak Brownie Fiesta camera kit when I was six and have been taking photographs ever since. I began exhibiting my photographs from various projects in 2000 with some noteworthy successes. Encouraged to expand and explore, I have continued  work on the Remainders Project, travelling back-road and main-street Ontario with my Bronica always at hand.
