Healing Power of Photographic Art

I remember the feeling of peace and calm when I made this image at dawn.  The quiet was accompanied by the chirps and songs of birds nearby and far away.

So it felt right when this image was selected by Jerri Menaul of Art Vitae for installation at the new cancer center, Florida Cancer Specialist & Research Institute in north Fort Meyers, Florida.

The interior space was a long wall between the administrative offices and exam rooms.  While documenting the installation a number of staff and patients stopped to say how positive it was for them to have this beautiful and peaceful image in a place of medical treatment and healing.  As an artist, knowing that the energy I put into creating an image  has capability to connect with others and enhance their lives is a reward in and of itself.

Healing Power of Photographic Art

Life Observed

I am a seeker and keeper of stories using visual poetry to observe the ordinary in hopes of seeing the humanity that points toward our oneness.


A constant in my photographic work is observing life and communicating those observations with images.  I am excited to participate in the current competition being sponsored by Lens Culture.  The theme is Street Photography.   Here are the five images I’ve submitted.

In the heart of midtown Manhattan NYC, among the hard surfaces of concrete, glass and steel, a moment of childlike wonderment. A bubble one of the most delicate things there is catches the attention of preoccupied New Yorkers and gives them a moment of joyful engagement.

I spontaneously gave this image the title “interchange 5th Avenue.”
Then I thought, “maybe I should check the exact meaning of interchange.
The Oxford dictionary gives this definition:
“1 (of two people) exchange (things) with each other: 2 put each of (two things) in the other’s place; alternate, exchange between two people etc: 2 alternation.”
This meaning is pertinent to my image: “road junction where traffic streams do not cross.”

Awaken to the power of the breath.

Breath is the very essence of life; it marks our birth and our death. As a society, we have created rituals around the day we take our first and last breath. We celebrate our birthday each year and after we have taken our last breath, our family and friends come together to mourn and remember our life.  

 In general we seem to pay little attention to the breath; it has become so automatic, that we forget to recognize the life giving power of breath in our life. We can utilize this powerful experience to understand the nature of life better by witnessing the process in a conscious and curious way.

The cycle of in- and out-breath is a metaphor for every process in life: everything begins, ascends, and reaches the top, then the still point before it descends, contracts, dies out and returns…
