Retired architect, formerly from Paris, France, now living in Phoenix, Arizona.
Practiced photography as an artist for 35 years. Numerous shows and books.
Photo interests: people (4 books of portraits), human form (five albums), visual artists (12 books so far), dance and dancers (2 books), mural art (3 books), underwater imagery (3 albums), native cultures.
No interest whatsoever in "glamour".
Pleased and humbled by the interest in my work from talented fellow photographers versed in the arts. I'm not here to collect "likes" or sell anything, only to share good work with similarly-minded creative spirits. Encouragements are nice, positive criticism is better. Because I respect the creative work of others, I don't grade it. When I like it, I say it.
Worried to see, under the guise of "art", the growing presence of porn, the cancer of most photo sites, compromising YouPic's initial purpose and integrity.
Enjoy the day. Mirabile visu (latin for "Let your eyes wonder")
