Work

Identified below are self-initiated photography works from these last fifty years.

There is no distinction between my personal work and that of photographing interiors for interior designers. It is all an art form. I have photographed everything from farmhouses throughout the country (published by Bantam in a book titled, The Farmhouse) to former castles, and I approached each subject the same. Each subject is a piece of art. Katherine Hepburn remarked on my work saying that my photographs were like paintings themselves.

I have specialized in photographing interiors of houses since 1980 which has created unique opportunities and opened doors. After photographing five complete books with one of them being O Christmas Tree published by Rizzoli I contacted the then New York State Senator elect Clinton who gave me access to the White House Christmas tree in 2000.

Introductions to the New York Consulates of Scandinavian countries led to me photographing private residences of noted artists and writers along with Christmas trees in Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden in four trips totaling close to a half year of travel. Contacting the German tourist office led to a trip for which I photographed Christmas trees for a week in cities both in Western and Eastern Germany.

More recently when traveling out West I commented on a homeowner’s front yard Christmas decorations in the Hollywood Hills and after showing my portfolio and O Christmas Tree book I was given compete access to the home and photographed with their holiday decorator Christmas trees until 4:00 A.M.! This Christmas will mark the 26th year of photographing Christmas trees.
