About this portfolio

This is an Apol­o­gy for my port­fo­lio of pho­tographs: not for the pho­tographs them­selves, although you might think they deserve one.

The best rea­son I can give for pub­lish­ing a port­fo­lio of pho­tographs is that I’m doing it for myself. I’m hop­ing the cura­tion of my own images will remind me to think more delib­er­ate­ly about my inten­tion when I make new images and to make bet­ter deci­sions about whether the result jus­ti­fies that inten­tion or not. Or if, as it too-often hap­pens, I can­not fig­ure out what on earth I was think­ing at the time I pressed the shut­ter-but­ton, at least cura­tion forces me to sort the keep-for-some-rea­son from the file-and-for­get stuff in my cat­a­log. In short, this port­fo­lio is most­ly an attempt to “cut the crap”.

New pho­tog­ra­phers are, I guess, like­ly to reveal their new­ness (naiveté or what­ev­er) by the wide vari­ance of their efforts around the sam­ple aver­age. If I’m doing my job right, what you find here should be at the top of the vari­ance range, for now.
