Decennial

Retrospective

    As with my first self-curated retrospective five years ago, I find myself selecting those of my images which I enjoy but which have not fit thematically into the other exhibits appearing on this web site over the years. In other words, the images presented here are ones I like but cannot seem to fit better anywhere else, so here they are!
    Unlike my first (quinquennial) retrospective, this review of sundry fragments of my work does look backward more than ahead. This is probably a result of having that much more unexhibited material upon which to reflect as well as not wishing to get too far ahead of my 63-year old self anymore.
    In reviewing chronologically the selections I have made for this ten-year retrospective of my work since taking up black-and-white photography in a serious way, I find that my emphasis seems to have shifted from the "documentary and exotic" to the

"personal and closer-to-home." Is this a sign of growth as a photographer or simply another indication of aging as a sexagenarian?
    The remainder of my comments will relate more directly to the specific images in the exhibit. The viewer more interested in pictures than in words is invited to begin touring the exhibit at this point. Those interested in more background material on the images are encouraged to read on by selecting the "More Discussion" link below. Either way, I hope you all enjoy the exhibit!
