For more than twenty years I have been creating photographic collages.

                Piece by piece I create the scenes as a painter does. It takes me a maximum of five weeks and 300 to 400 separate, original photographs that I have taken, to complete one collage. As a result I have devoted thousands of hours, acquired thousands of photographs, and traveled thousands of miles, all because of my undying love for old automobiles.

               Rather than expounding on the sad, however, I prefer to direct my collages to the humorous because,
by and large, we are all much more receptive to humor.

               Once I have chosen the elements I need for a piece - and that's a subliminal process in itself - I start to cook.
The rest is instinctive and intuitive. A 20'x30' blow-up (from a 35mm negative) will be the sky.   After that, l l'x14", 8'x12", 5"x7' and 4"x6" prints (along with the original 3t/2'x5'' prints) are used for cars, people, buildings, animals, objects, foreground perspective and final detailing.

               Each element has to be carefully outlined to avoid seeing the scissors cuts, and then glued in place. Often a finished work includes a great car from New Jersey, an interesting character from Connecticut, a ravished out-building from New York State, Wyeth-type ground from New Hampshire, or a faded sign from Maine.

               I find many of my elements by word of mouth, eventually photographing new material for future works.

               All of my original work is for sale.  It call also be purchased in all of four sizes in either Cibachrome,
or 'C' print form.

               PERSONALIZED prints, which I began offering a few years ago, have now become a popular specialty.  

Write for information on how you can put yourself, your car, your wife, your dog, your traveling companion,
your mother-in-law, in one of my collages, making it look as though your desired image is actually in the scene.
