I was doing photography "professionally" at age 14 with a home darkroom and my trusty Yashica "D." At 17 I opened our second photographic studio with a partner. By age twenty I was running the business on my own and was still in love with photography. It was clear by then though that I couldn't realize my ambition to go to university while running a business so I decided to close the studio and study full-time. My interest in photography merged with a fascination for visual anthropology and I was delighted to discover, when I joined the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Carleton that I would get to teach visual anthropology (54.317) once in a while. I'll be offering this course in 1997-98 (Professor Bruce Cox often offers this course too). This page is very much under construction but here are a few links to get on with.
