He has carried a camera with him for over 50 years and has had the good fortune to be present many times when circumstances and light came together in wonderful scenes, waiting to be recorded. As a born traveler, he has visited Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand in addition to North America and the Arctic and has collected thousands of images.
Jerry believes every photographic image speaks for itself and every individual viewer interprets its ultimate meaning through their own reference frame. However, he finds it stimulating to use a theme as an organizational attractor to help select a set of images for presentation.
