artist bio

I have 30 years experience collecting 19th century and early 20th century photography, a fair eye as an amateur photographer, and a lifelong desire to See American history, not just read about it.
I have written photo books about Milwaukee and Langlade Counties, for Arcadia Publishing. I'm currently working on a photo book about World War II.
Two fine advantages of photographic history books? First, for the general public, these photo-histories can be a fun way to see how their grandparents lived. And secondly, their bookstore shelf lives are not limited to three months; they are often available on store shelves for long periods of time. My "Milwaukee, Wisconsin" book has been selling steadily for over seventeen years.

artist statement

I simply wish to help expose more of the general public to the wonders of photography and our American history. For many folks who would never read a regular history book, interesting photographs can be a bridge to carry them into our fascinating past.
To understand our past is to be better prepared for our future.
