Quindecennial

Retrospective

     Although this is the third five-year, or first 15-year (hence the latinized term "quindecennial") retrospective of my work since becoming thoroughly obsessed with photography, the selection of images presented here is more extensive and random than might be expected from the title of the exhibit. As with the earlier retrospectives, some of the images presented point to where I seem to be headed as much as where I've come from with my photography. Candidly, most are simply images which I haven't had a better opportunity to present elsewhere or which I can't help returning to for another try, this time with a digital twist or two. I might better have entitled the exhibit "Hodge Podge," but that hardly seems as dignified as "Quindecennial Retrospective," although the Romans probably would have skinned me alive for coining such a phrase.

    In any event, the images in this exhibit span 35 years, from 1972 to 2007, with almost two-thirds of them coming from 2003 to 2005, probably my most prolific period as a photographer.
    While a little more than a third of the images are American scenes (half of those being taken at or near our home), all the rest save one (from New Zealand) are European in origin, with almost a third of the entire exhibit having been taken in France alone. This situation is a reflection of my wife Til's fluency with the French language and of our enjoyment over the years of that country's many attractions and its success in maintaining so much of its traditional values.
    The subjects in this exhibit range rather broadly: from urban to rural; from architecture to landscape; and from still life to street photography. More particulars on each image may be had by clicking on the "Notes" links on this page. Please enjoy.
