This slideshow was created to demonstrate nearly 40 years of experience to those unfamiliar with my work. In viewing it, I am reminded of the great opportunities I have had exploring architecture and culture. I am grateful for the confidence my clients have in my eye and technical expertise.

I am lucky to have had scores of assistants over the years that have willingly borne the necessary grueling hours of shooting. Many of studio assistants have looked after the care and feeding of the archive where the photographic results live.

I am also fortunate to have the support and enthusiasm of my wife Ulla and my children, Lucinda and Leo.
