Reading Pictures refers to a new, systematic approach for looking at photographs in ways that lead to insight about the personal characteristics of the photographer, a deeper appreciation of the essence of photographs, and a richer aesthetic experience. It emerges from my larger sphere of research called PhotoPsychology that describes both the historical interactions between photography and psychology plus the psychological underpinnings of the art of photography itself.
On this website you can learn about Reading Pictures and PhotoPsychology in many ways available through the drop-down Menu in the above right-hand corner. There are lessons based on my PowerPoint presentations, detailed essays on the “About…” pages, and a bibliography.
I frequently lecture and judge at photographic societies, artists’ collectives and art centers throughout the tri-state region and am an active member of the Soho Photo Gallery in New York City. Lists of my presentation topics are available on the Presentations tab in the Menu, and you can contact me for speaking or judging at your organization using the Contact Me page.
Thank you visiting the Reading Pictures Website.
Ten of my photographs from my 2005 exhibition “Alone in Old Jerusalem” (see the Portfolios section) are included in this exhibit at the Jewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County in Freehold, NJ. Visit them at www.jhmomc.org.
From time to time the Soho Photo Gallery organizes group shows for members around specific themes – like this one – that run for a month concurrently with the solo and guest shows in the main gallery. You can learn about Soho Photo’s show from their website: www.sohophoto.com.
Outdoor murals don’t stay on their walls. They are playful, interacting with the world around them, both physically and visually. The photographs in Off The Wall challenge our perceptions of what’s real and what’s not. In them the art and the real oscillate wonderfully and with surprising variety, sometimes obvious or subtle, wry or puzzling. All of them are “straight” pictures made on the spot by camera craft and a bit of guile. Imagine my pleasure seeking, finding, seeing and photographing the scenes displayed in Off The Wall.
