All photographs were taken in Myanmar.

I grew up in a family of photographers – both my grandfather and father were award-winning amateur photographers, and my father was well known for his slide travelogues on many parts of the world. I received my first box camera at the age of seven and haven’t stopped taking pictures since. Keeping up with changes in camera technology has been a continuing challenge. Only recently, now that I’m retired from 50 years of teaching at Gettysburg College, have I found time to submit photos for exhibition. My images have been accepted by regional juried shows in Pennsylvania, Colorado, Virginia and Maryland. My solo shows at art councils and libraries have included "The Bosnian Backstory," "Faces of Myanmar" and "Barns of Adams County."
