ABOUT ME

I have spent my working days as an IT professional until last year, when I retired and was able to dedicate more time to my photography.

I got myself a Kodak Brownie when I was 10 or 11 and discovered the magic of B&W pictures. Years later, when our son was born, it was time for an SLR – a Minolta, and I never stopped taking pictures. Over the years, the snapshots became better composed, I learned about color theory and discovered the beauty of light. I switched from a B&W and Prints-from-Slides darkroom to digital cameras and Photoshop Elements in 2005.

I am drawn to the light which paints the flowers, to the geometric lines of urban landscapes, and to everything that catches my eye.


I hope you will enjoy these photographs.

La Perla

La Perla is a slum astride the northern historic city wall of Old San Juan, Puerto Rico, stretching along the rocky Atlantic coast immediately east of the Santa Maria Magdalena de Pazzis Cemetery and down the slope from Calle Norzagaray.

La Perla was established in the late 19th century. Initially, the area was the site of a slaughterhouse because the law required them and homes of former slaves and homeless non-white servants – as well as cemeteries – to be established away from the main community center; in this case, outside the city walls.
