I am an artist, photographer, & teacher. I spend part of each year in Venice, Italy.
A black & white darkroom photographer for 25 years, I began to shoot color slides during the first year I spent in Venice. Frustrated by the problem of making accurate photographic prints from transparencies, I embraced digital printing early on. Now that digital cameras have surpassed their 35mm equivalents, I shoot digitally. I don't look back.
I founded Photography Atelier at the Radcliffe Seminars in 1997, bringing the program to Lesley University in 2002. In 1985 I taught experimental photography in Venice, Italy for the Centro Fotografia. In 2005 I co-founded a summer photography program for Northeastern University in Venice, and I taught in it through 2009.
I continue to teach intensive digital photo workshops in Venice & on Lake Como,
Italy for the International Center of Photography, based in New York City.
My next Venice workshop for ICP, Venetian Light & Life: from Within, will be September 17–28, 2011.
