"What use will money and wealth be to those who possess them when the rivers and land are poisoned, the seas devoid of life and the air polluted beyond tolerance?"

I have no formal training in photography but I began using a camera at the age of 6 when my father gave me a Kodak Brownie camera - it was autofocus and the film was a mere 12 exposures, however I was hooked! Later I moved onto a cheap Cannon, Polaroid, a Zenit E East German SLR (with various lenses and filters) and finally a Fuji S4200 (both the latter again from my father). I only recently (2013) began shooting digitally, most of my digital work (see digital art) is done after scanning the prints on a flatbed scanner.
