I create digital photographic images of fragments of scenes, working on a border between visual reality and the emotional abstract, exploring pattern, color, form, and texture. Although I work with a small camera, the final pictures are quite large drawing the viewer in.

I often work with brilliant solarizations in color and black and white.

Most recently I have been creating abstract images as a series of transformations based on allowing overlapping images to interfere with eachother in color space. These brightly colored images still retain, barely, some indication of the original photographs.

I published photographs of the Boston Ballet in rehearsal. These images are available in a catalog available on Amazon.com (Stillness and Motion) and in a book "Behind the Scene at Boston Ballet" by Christine Temin and Wally Gilbert. I then did a series of abstract images featuring silhouettes drawn from the ballet and from other sources. I then created several series of geometric abstracts, based on squares, triangles, and lines. My more recent work has been explorations of images in black and white and also in fully saturated color.
