PEOPLE, PLACES AND PORTIONS -- Define the story and the vision of my images.

PEOPLE are those images I encounter, in a documentary fashion, while traveling to teach about Marriage and Family Therapy Family Systems in cultures different than mine. Thailand, Kenya, Indonesia, Myanmar, Romania, and a few others like England, Scotland, Iceland, and the United States.

PLACES are the images surrounding the people. The place they live, work, and raise their families. Some are magnificent and others, by any standard, are survivalist existence.

PORTIONS is my simple way of defining all the other images that do not represent the whole. In the image at the bottom the viewer is only seeing a portion of the whole. As a matter of fact most images, regardless of the media, are only a small portion of the whole story.

I am grateful to be able to travel, serve others, and embrace images.
