The Exploration of the Inner & Outer Landscapes

As an artist in the medium of photography, I have often focused on landscapes large and small because I like to be in the outdoors in beautiful and inspiring places. To catch a sunset, a sunrise, or the symmetry of a scene at the right moment brings a satisfaction that is hard to duplicate. Those images are in the Landscapes Gallery.

As a psychoanalyst, a focus of my life has been the exploration of the inner worlds of the men and women with whom I have been privileged to work.  Those inner landscapes are poetic, vivid, and endlessly fascinating.  While psychoanalysis has usually been thought of as a verbal medium and the forms used by the unconscious are closely allied to poetry, the images that are created in the mind's eye can be visually magnificent.  

Lately, I have been intrigued by the challenge and the opportunity of trying to express the poetry of the unconscious--as expressed most vividly in fantasies and dreams--in visual terms. In the Conceptual Gallery, this website contains my attempts to rise to the challenge of rendering the metaphors, allegories, similes, and substitutions (to mention just a few of the poetic tools used by the unconscious) in the language of photography.  

In other words, the Galleries of this website look at both outer and inner spaces. My hope is that you will bring your own intuition and artistry to bear to expand any and all of my images, since those images mark the beginning of the exploration, not the end.
