I have been making photographs ever since receiving my first camera, an Asahi Pentax, ordered by mail from Japan in 1968. Viewing the world through the lens of a camera, whether it is a midwestern farm landscape or the Yellow Mountains of China, allows me the opportunity to connect physically, emotionally and creatively to the subject at hand.
