I became interested in photography as a part of my interest in mountaineering. More and more photography replaced mountaineering as my primary interest. When I retired from the practice of Neurosurgery in 1999 I studied black and white photography for two years with the goal of doing platinum and palladium printing. I began printing in that medium in 2001 and have basically done that ever since. There are some subjects, however, which inescapably lend themselves to color and in which color is an integral part of the photographic experience. It was in recognizing that which led me to publish my first book in color: "Cuba, A Romance of Light and Color".
