Photographs

Many of the photographs on this page have been sent by wire and published nationwide and around the world. When I started as a freelance photographer in the late 70's, I soon felt privileged to be among the few to have access to technology that could accomplish that feat within a few minutes. Recent technology enables millions to do the same in seconds, and much of what is viewed on mass media today likely originated on a common smartphone.
