Artist Bio
I have taken photographs since 1958 when one of my photos won a prize at my school. I have continued to be a photographer whenever possible, even for awhile in the late 1960s, unsuccessfully trying to earn a living as a professional photographer. After that, I was the chief photographer and photo editor for an alternative newspaper. Eventually digital photography had enough quality and resolution to bring me back to regularly taking photographs. Little by little I have focused on taking disability-themed photographs.

Artistic Discipline
Digital photography, socially engaged or street photography.

I’ve taken the odd college course on photography over the years. These days Youtube and photo books advance my knowledge. My work is informed by 40 years formally and informally studying disability.

Professional Experience:
Two of my photos were accepted into ArtAbility at Bryn Mawr 2017. My photos of the 1977 504 demonstration in San Francisco have been featured at Marin Center for Independent Living and Bancroft Library at UC Berkeley.
