has been a member since Aug 2008 and goes by aes53.

I have been involved in photography in one capacity or another for most of my life. I was an avid photographer who studied, albeit briefly, with Harry Callahan and Aaron Siskind at RISD. I left photography as a profession in 1975 but have retained my passion. Over the years I have amassed a respectable collection of 20th century photography and, in recent years have resumed, in a quirky way, taking photos.
