Forty years ago, in March 1969, I photographed Frank Gurney, an engraver, while we both resided in Edmonton, Alberta. I was a student in photography school. Frank was an independent engraver working from his home. Frank engraved industrial stamping dies, trophies, fine jewelry, semiprecious stones, handguns, rifles and shotguns.

Frank surfaced in the public domain recently, in local newspapers, as the engraver for a replica of the Grey Cup for the Canadian Football League. He was approached to do the job, but was initially regected because his quote was conisidered too high. A few weeks later he was given the job. Then,
receiving Gurney’s engraved copy, the CFL commissioned him to engrave another
replica.

I had been toying with the concept of
visiting former works and projects. The news stories of Frank Gurney seemed an
appropriate cue to resurrect the negatives from 1969.

The world presents itself and I observe. There are times the observation becomes an obsession. Sometimes, a casual encounter. These moments become the photographs I interpret by exaggeration or simplification.

I have been an exhibitor since 1969; exhibiting photographs, painting and prints through 150 exhibitions, primarily in US university, college, and community galleries in 31 American States; in BC, Alberta, Ontario and in web galleries in Canada, Australia, China, Thailand, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Italy and the United States. I now publish books of current and past projects as a means of closure and completion.
My images are marketed in the United States by PrintedArt.com and are also available on Amazon.com

Born and educated in Alberta, I moved to the coast in 1984, and have been living in Victoria since 1986.
