Beginning with a Brownie Box camera and local NYC expeditions, the photographer graduated to progressively more sophisticated equipment (now a 35mm Minolta XG-M), and then from 1974 until 1983 made annual forays to more exotic sites. These February destinations included the Algarve, Moscow, the Yucatan, Greece, Morocco, Egypt, the Canary Islands, Northern Italy, France, England, Holland and Venezuela. Traveling most often alone permitted thoughtful exploring and unhurried recordings evoking the wonder of the place.

During a high school teaching career (1973-2007) photographs were regularly introduced to literature and composition classes to stimulate reading-related discussion and writing. They also, on occasion, were part of guest lectures, "Developing an Eye for Composition," for Graphic Arts and Machine Technology students.

Formal visual education has included American Film Institute Summer Programs (resulting in two independent animated and live action films), and local photographic workshops.

Today, in retired/rewired mode, the location focus has turned to Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts and Vermont, but has continued to forswear the digital and photoshop worlds.

Peggy, as a photography fan, I really enjoyed seeing Carlson's work yesterday. She really has a talent for finding the beauty in the smallest details. I'll second that recommendation - it's not to be missed!
