• Welcome to PhotoPhonica!

    For the inaugural episode, I chose a photograph from 2016 that I made of my friend Russ Darling, who I photographed as he was rebuilding a stone wall on a historic property in our small town in northeastern Connecticut. Russ is a Vietnam Era Veteran who has worn many hats over his life: Poet, Artist, former School Bus driver and most recently, Stone Mason.

    *Special thanks to Nicole Werbeck at NPR who gave me the first assignment that combined pictures and audio and started this idea down it’s path.
