VIEW IN MY ROOM
Synesthesia derives from the Greek syn, meaning “union” plus aisthaesis, meaning “sensation,” and thus means "joined sensation," such as when something that is ordinarily "seen" is tasted as well. It is a condition that appears in some form in up to 1% of the population. In my case, up until about the age of 10, I vividly remember perceiving numbers (and, less frequently, letters) as colors. Sadly, I now only rarely experience this phenomenon. I call this series synesthetic landscapes because of the suggestive manner in which reflections/refractions of otherwise "unappreciated" streams of light evoke the synesthetic experience of vast landscapes, seascapes, and other "majestic" vistas. Images in this portfolio have been published in Lenswork Magazine (DVD Edition #105) and Stone Voices (Winter 2013).

I am, by training and profession, a physicist, specializing in nonlinear dynamics and complex adaptive systems (with a PhD in theoretical physics). However, by temperament and inner muse, I am a photographer, and have been one for far longer than my PhD gives me any right to claim an ownership by physics. Photography became a life-long pursuit for me the instant my parents gave me a Polaroid instamatic camera for my 10th birthday. I have been studying the mysterious relationship between inner experiences and outer realities ever since. A founding member of Lorton Arts Foundation's Workhouse Photographic Society in 2009 (near Occoquan, VA), my photographs have won numerous awards, have been exhibited in many juried solo and group shows, and hang in galleries, businesses, and private homes. I have been featured in Lenswork four times, in Black & White twice, have won various awards in the prestigious B&W Spider awards, and won the book contest sponsored by the UK Black + White Photography magazine in 2007.
