“I believe in the photographer’s magic, the ability to stir the soul with light and shape and color. Through the photographer’s eyes a kiss becomes a romance, a stretch of fabric is a costume of endless possibilities, ...a face has the playful vibrancy that describes a lifetime… I strive for a visual split second capture that tells a story... Through the years I’ve taken timeless images of beautiful women, movie stars, and personalities.”

"In Zanzibar, we still fly on carpets. The Island of Cleopatra has fossil for sand. Take a fisherman's boat at midnight to visit the island under a clear full moonlit Turkish night, the sky the color of the blue of Cuba, the ocean waves slapping the boat with so much passion relentlessly declaring its love over and over again...ah! the feeling of capturing what you see through the viewfinder, in a moment it's gone!...where do these fabulous moments come from, where do they go to......"Why do the waves ask you the same question? What color is the scent of the blue weeping of violets?" ...the photographer's magic - the ability to stir the soul with light and shape and color.
Every form correctly seen is beautiful. The eye doesn't see any shapes, it sees only what is differentiated through light and dark or through colors. Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749-1832), German poet, dramatist. Sayings in Prose
