I've travelled and lived abroad and loved it. These collections show my interests in history of art and architecture, and my observations of human behavior around the world.
30 imagesI usually make an image that shows what it was like to me to be there doing whatever it was I was doing. Often this has meant being a passenger. Sometimes it's just my feet with some context. Still, each one brings back the complete memory of the experience.
54 imagesI lived in Cairo, Egypt, in the 1970s, endlessly fascinated by the Mamluk architecture (13th - 15th centuries), the complex social hierarchies expressed in peoples’ behaviors, and horseback riding across the desert around the pyramids at Giza and Saqqara. I bulk-loaded Tri-X film in my Canon F1 camera, wandered around in a blak galabeyya and veil, against which the black-bodied camera was not conspicuous, and made endless exposures which I developed in the pantry of the villa where we lived. I’ve scanned those old negatives, developing Photoshop techniques to remove the dust spots and scratches and to minimize the ferocious Tri-X grain. Here’s a core selection from I saw in Egypt during the Sadat years. They are available as RF stock downloads, fine art exhibition prints, or cards. Click on any image you'd like to examine more closely.
18 galleriesI like to find new ways of photographing major historic and heritage buildings that have already been "done" by everyone with a camera who has visited them, amateur and professional. Here are my views of the Alhambra, Angkor temples, the Acropolis of Athens, the village of Ayvalik, Dalmatian historic towns, Fountains Abbey, Historic Christ Church in Weems, VA., Lavenham, Suffolk, Paestum temples, Giza pyramids, the Taj Mahal, and the contemporary Scottish Parliament building in Edinburgh. All copyrighted images are available for you to download. Special discounted prices for educator and educational institutions.
