R.H. Photography

My original focus was as a painter in oils, but I could not limit myself to just one discipline.

I have been told I am a little like Valentine Michael Smith, a character from the 1961 Science Fiction Novel, Stranger in a Strange Land, by American author Robert A. Heinlein, not that I was born on Mars and raised by Martians, but in the context that in the novel, Smith who was not born on Earth is unfamiliar with its culture and customs. He sees and experiences everything in a fresh and un-prescribed way, at least un-prescribed as earthlings would have it.

Commentary on Carnival II

I have been a photographer and non-camera based artist for over forty years. Originally from Chicago, Illinois, I currently reside in Collins, New York. Originally educated as a painter in oils, Icould not limit myself to just one discipline. I have received awards for my work inphotography, oil painting, and water colors in regional and national exhibitions and have participated in numerous solo and group shows across the United States.Ihave traveled extensively in the US and abroad doing commissioned fine art and freelance photo documentary assignments. I was the staff photographer for the Buffalo Diplomatic Cultural Exchange to the Republic of Haiti for the Africana Research Museum.My graphics and photography have been used to benefit numerous organizations including Amnesty International and my work resides in several permanent collections. The risks I take with my work compel the viewer to challenge their sensibilities. I have been published in numerous magazinesand was reviewed by William Zimmer of the New York Times.

Photography has given me the freedom to express various emotional challenges, and stories through visualization. My work is authentic. Carnivale II is a complex drama with several stories intertwined creating a classic case where fear and beauty can coexist. You are not totally sure what is happening or going to happen. Is the Ringmaster directing the scene or merely a disinterested party. You are the voyeur amid the chaos. You control the translucent human conditionevolving within yourself…
