My fine art photography is strongly influenced by my prior career as a pathologist at a Boston teaching hospital. For many years I experimented with digital imaging to study the mysteries of human disease, so it was entirely natural for me to adopt digital photography for my personal work. My studio feels like a laboratory where I can freely experiment. Sometimes I am drawn to the natural or man-made worlds outside my studio, and sometimes I invent new worlds using computer manipulation. In each instance, I am drawn to some visual mystery, some mystical quality that can provide a path toward spirituality and self-discovery.
