My interest in photography reaches back to the summer of 1974, when I took a summer school class in my school district and first held a 35mm camera in my hands. My teacher was tuned in to the Watergate hearings, but I was tuned in to the wonders of black and white film. Not until 1979 did I acquire my own 35mm - an Olympus OM-1n, which I still have and occasionally use. Even in the digital age, I still shoot black and white film, which I develop myself using coffee as the developer. I'm a former physics and chemistry teacher, so my photography expresses the beauty I've always found in the sciences.
