Round Pegs in Square Holes

I have been a photographer since I was a child, growing up in England. I learned how to develop film and print black-and-white pictures while in high school, got into semi-professional photography at Trinity College, Dublin, and have been a keen amateur photographer ever since. I went digital in 1995 and have steadily upgraded since then, with Canon’s cameras and iPhones. I use Photos, Pixelmator and Photoshop for post-editing.

Since retiring from the University at Albany, where I was a Professor and Chair of the Reading Department in the School of Education, I have devoted more time to photography. While my photography embodies the early tradition of photography, which is to photograph beautiful things—especially in nature— it is also to capture unexpected details that surprise, resonate, or encourage the viewer to ponder. Given the ongoing pandemic, I’ve given this exhibition a lighter touch, placing round objects in square frames that I hope will delight and entertain.
