Welcome to the ReadingPictures Website

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.
