For the past 40 years, I have documented predecessors and contemporaries via oral history interviews aided by digital recordings.

This web page complements those oral history interviews with digital imagery.

Many of the archival photos would be simply unrecoverable in the event of (yet another) hard-drive failure.

Any seeming “artiness” in the Photo Experiments section is just trial and error. In the early 1980s, I lugged around a fully manual 4×5 Omega view camera and tripod.  In the early 1990s, I traveled with a semi-automatic Pentax 35mm.  In 2019, I bought myself a Canon Rebel T5 DSLR.  Am very slowly transitioning from film to digital, and visibly struggle in technical areas such as:

5. Aperture
6. Shutter Speed
7. ISO
8. Metering
9. White Balance, and
10. Software (Lightroom) and Accessories
