My work has changed in phases but when I retired from teaching I focused again on photography, an interest that began in the 1970s when I joined a small photography group in Princeton, NJ with E. Jan Kounitz. In the years that photography went from film to digital, I was making mixed media paintings and pastel drawings. I started showing photographs sporadically in 2008; by 2014 I've exhibited photographs exclusively. ​Since spring of 2017, I started using film again but I'm trying not to be a film snob.
