My relationship with Nature has spanned continents, biomes, and centuries. As a child, I grew up in West Virginia, New Jersey, Ohio, and England. Whether I was playing hide-n-seek with a giant Rhododendron bush or war in a hickory woodlot, I have always been facinated by the hidden within Nature. I began exploring photography as an art medium in 1977. Over the years, I have particularly focused on capturing the textures, patterns, and fractals that are inherent within Nature - wholes within wholes, whether within a seed, a pollen-covered pistil, a flower, or a landscape. The simplicity and detail that emerges within the macro or the micro is both seen and the unseen. The composition of the photograph is the act of co-creation.
