“I didn’t choose photography, photography chose me.”  Gerardo Suter

I was given my first vintage Pentax in 1974, at the age of 17. I fell in love. The camera became my third eye, my third hand, my best friend. It still is. I studied photography at Indiana University in Bloomington and Columbia College in Chicago.

The works presented here are part of a project entitled, “A Birds Eye View.” The idea came to me at dawn looking out my window, 67 floors high. I spotted a falcon soaring between the Blue Cross and Aon buildings. Falcons have exceptional powers of vision, and although I did not capture the bird in flight, these images reflect what that bird may have seen, heard and felt. All the photographs are archivally printed on Ilford Prestige Gold MonoSilk paper.

Thanks to the knowledgeable, eclectic, talented family at RSCPC. They have taught me how to see better. Thanks to my real family who have taught me how to love better.
