Early in my career, I discovered that the meaning of a single exposure, when it is part of a collection of moments, becomes only one element of an evolving story. In every succeeding photograph, the subject and I are older, our circumstances have changed, and our relationship has deepened or dissolved. Whether the subject is my daughter, a local family, a former student, or a hospice patient, they are all in part autobiographical. I’ve spent the last forty years obsessed with the black and white image. Five years ago, I purchased a digital camera for snapshots and through this experience I discovered a new way of seeing color.
