My first degree, earned at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, was in photography. My teachers there were Art Sinsabaugh, Robbert Flick, Reed and Gwen Estabrook, and Luther Smith. For nearly ten years I was rarely without my Leica and made thousands (I estimate 6-8) of black and white exposures, printing many, many hundreds. Unfortunately, a building fire in 1986 burned the bulk of those negatives and prints. These are a selection from the few I salvaged. The urban landscapes were taken primarily in Peoria, Illinois. The long exposure dancers were made in Salzburg, Austria, the majority of portraits are from my time in South Dakota, and the landscapes are from all those locations. With a couple exceptions, these were all made between 1973 and 1983. I wish I had more to show, but I am grateful to have these.
