After many years of worldwide travel and wildlife photography, especially in the Amazon Basin and East Africa, I have turned to Abstract photography as a frontier where my academic background in history, art, and literature can help give resonance to images created in unusual ways, often with blended in-camera multiple exposures, multiple perspectives, and intentional blurring.

My processing begins and ends with Lightroom. The two images from Old Montreal displayed here are relatively straightforward, both using blended multiple exposures (two for Cite Memoire, to soften and “age” the scene, and three or four images for the Mysterious Door on Rue Saint-Paul). I have found novel ways to transform common or unlikely objects into “something rich and strange” by waving my Canon R5 like a sorcerer’s wand.
