About Me​

knoxself.jpgI began my romance with photography in 1967 at the age of ten with a Polaroid Model 125. The path soon led to 35mm film--and onwards to medium and large format platforms. Over the decades I have enjoyed photography as both a leisure pursuit and profession--working primarily in the educational, studio, event & architectural documentation genres.

Although digital has now taken over my image workflow, I still 'tinker around' occasionally with older silver gear and processes.

I tend to gravitate toward capturing elements of the manmade world & vernacular architecture, and the interaction of people engaged in everyday life. My wife Donna & I live and work in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State with a number of four-legged creatures, in an old house that eats money.

My current working kit is a FujiFilm X-T5 complemented by a well-rounded group of Nikkor DX/AF-S lenses--via a Fringer FR-FTX1 adapter. Then there is the basement filled with old film and darkroom stuff to deal with!

The art of photography is finding a small and unique slice of four-dimensional reality–then crystallizing it into two dimensions–thereby creating something previously unseen and meaningful for others to experience. I See Things...
