Some call me a “travel photographer.” I think I’d classify myself as a “people photographer,” with a strong interest in documenting ethnic diversity, development projects, conflict/civil strife, and human interaction. I’ve travelled extensively in Southeast Asia, many republics of the former Soviet Union (the Caucasus and Central Asia), and the Middle East including Iran, which I found to be a fascinating country with very warm, friendly people.
The photo here shows a clock shop located in the Kurdish area of Iran, in a city called Sanandaj. The owner was quite amenable to me snapping a few photos of him! I hope to return to Iran someday.
I have a strong preference for black & white photography. I develop the film and print the photos in my darkroom.
