A native of the Northeast Kingdom, my unceasing wonder at the beauty of this region, and of the world, has been the stimulus for my passion in photography for over 40 years. Accompanying this medium of expression has developed the observation of the seasons and humanity we all share, manifesting itself in my written expression through poetic verse. Apparitions is the culmination of this expression, within which I attempt to postulate on the beauty of our natural surroundings as well as on the appreciation of human existence and mankind. I use the concept of Apparitions as metaphor for the values, beliefs and inherent character traits exhibited by life in the Northeast Kingdom, combined with the universal truths in our collective existence in the world at large. I hope that my work succeeds in this purpose, or, at the least, exposes a slight notion towards that end.
