American Way Collection is a "life's work", developed over the years and currently ongoing. Sometimes it's about providing the viewer with a glimpse at the passing of time. However, at a time when fewer of the images we see are an honest representation of real life, street photography provides a window on the world that actually surrounds us here and now. My casual street portrait images portray character and soul of the individual, transcending cultural and language barriers. Many of my photographs are individually hand colored. My commitment to photography is imbedded.
