I have taken color and mostly BW photographs for over 40 years. Mostly in Michigan but other states also. It would be nice if all of the portraits were take with large format and super sharp. But they were not, and are not that sharp. Some are copies of 35mm transpariencies or even photo of old prints. I included them to give you the viewers insite of my 40 years of photography and vision. My entire collection now at the Mott College Archives, Flint, MI
It is my fundamental conviction that compassion - the natural capacity of the human heart to feel concern for and connection with another human being - constitutes a basic aspect of our nature shared by all human beings, as well as being the foundation of our happiness. All ethical teachings, whether religious or nonreligious, aim to nurture this innate and precious quality, to develop it and to perfect it.
