Richard is a fine art photographer who discovered that he has more in common with printmakers and painters than most photographers. The quality of the print, the size, the tonality, surface and edges matter often more than the subject. Richard uses primarily black and white film and prints large format images. The traditional black and white process resonates with Richard in the uniqueness of each print and the time invested in their creation.
