Steve has worked primarily with black and white film. Using his own darkroom, he developed and printed all his own work. With the advancement in digital technology, he now works exclusively with digital formats, and is working to digitize his black and white negatives. Several of the scanned black and white photographs are included on this web site.
His work has been exhibited as part of juried exhibits at the Monmouth Museum, Lincroft, NJ; Henry Hicks Cooperative Gallery in Brooklyn, NY; the Swampscott Art Association; the Mystic Art Association; the Berkeley Art Works; the Still Point Gallery; the Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center; and was part of a joint exhibit at the North Shore Unitarian Church in Danvers, MA. He and his daughter, Maggie, recently held their first joint exhibition. A photograph that he took of a bicycle shop won first prize in a local newspaper competition. The same photo earned a national honorable mention, and hung as part of a Kodak exhibit at Epcot Center. Several of Steve’s railroad photographs have appeared in“Railpace” magazine, a national railroad magazine.
Asked to summarize his style, he stated, “I often pause to see what others may pass by…I try to capture the simple beauty, and at times,the raw emotions, of the scene that has been presented.”
