Since 1965 I’ve been in the dark… darkroom that is. From the age of 9 with my Kodak Instamatic, given to me from my Swedish born grandfather, I’ve been hooked. I remember going to the basement of my grandpa’s vintage Brooklyn brownstone, There, amazingly aside from the coal pile and furnace to heat the apartments above was – the darkroom. There, my images began.
“In whatever one does, there must be a relationship between the eye and the heart. With the one eye that is closed, one looks within, with the other eye that is open, one looks without.”
