There are so many expressions of genre and style in photography that it is difficult to select a particular focus for a body of work. I am very drawn to portraiture since it is so easy to relate to the human face. With the right lighting, a rather magical experience evolves.
I am currently working on a gallery of photographs I shot in the summer of 2013 in northern Russia. The colors and atmosphere are palpable. This photo is the belltower of the Dormition Monastery in the old city of Tikhvin.
