I am a retired physician who specialized in internal medicine, with a focus on addiction medicine. My images have been displayed in many juried exhibitions. Throughout my life my greatest joy has come from immersing myself in natural settings, which often includes travel to remote locations, and observing wildlife and the beauty of natural landscapes. The beauty of nature also helps activate the right side of my brain, dormant for much of my past. I like the technical challenge of photography and the part it plays in nurturing a sense of my own creativity and unique perspective.
Just viewing a photograph depicting or suggesting natural scenes can help people heal emotionally, spiritually, and even physically. I believe that nature connects us to the world and each other.
My hope is that my art will foster a personal connection with the natural world, motivate efforts to preserve our natural environment, and by so doing better our community’s mental and physical health.
