This gallery shows my complete work on Wikimedia.org. The photographs I have put up here are my best work at full resolution -- not secondary work. I did this because, nearing the age of 70, I wanted to make sure that my work would be available and accessible to others interested in the style of photography that I helped pioneer. I have written a book about it: Experimental Digital Photography (Sterling Publishing, New York/London), 2010.
My particular method for experimentation has been to take candid photographs at slow shutter speeds handheld under available light. My shutter speeds have ranged from 1/4 second to 20 seconds, depending on the circumstances. I wanted to photograph a continuous duration, rather than sequential sharp images as in chronophotography as pioneered by Muybridge (see link at the bottom of the page) and others. Instead I wanted to record images that showed the full range of motion over time, not unlike the the Italian Futurists and in particular the photographer associated with the Italian Futurists, Anton Giulio Bragaglia (see links at the bottom of the page).
The photos you see in this gallery were created over fifteen years using digital cameras starting in 1998. Before digital I had spent 30 years working with film. The imagery you see here was created with photographic effects and not with computer graphics. I did, however, tweak my photos using standard darkroom techniques to adjust contrast and brightness, for example.
