“Following a career as Professor of Physics at Wellesley College and Research Scientist at the  MIT Media Lab, I combined my long-time passions for animals and photography.  I am particularly interested in form, texture, and lighting in images.  I am attracted to subjects for their simplicity and beauty of form.   

My “Elliott” portfolio, of a spirited pony in his stall, has been given a number of solo shows,  including two exhibitions in the Griffin Museum satellite galleries, and at an MIT Architecture Department Tele-exhibit.   Selections from my “Antique Skin” and  “Elliott” portfolios, as well as other pieces, have been selected for over a dozen juried exhibitions including  “The Horse: A Juried Exhibit” at Asbury University in Wilmore, KY, the “Member’s Show” at the Texas Photographic Society, and “The Contemporary Nude” at the SE Center for Photography.

Most recently, I have spent much of my time photographing the animals on a nearby farm in South Natick, MA,  consummating a childhood passion for farms and animals while growing up in rural Texas.  

In the last decade, I have taken several courses in the Certificate Program at RRhode Island School of Design,  and in the New England School of Photography’s evening program. I have also taken several studio art courses in drawing and design at Wellesley College.   Workshops have included “Equine Photography in Southern France” with Tony Stromberg, “A Certain Alchemy” with Keith Carter at Maine Media, and “Atelier 26” with Meg Birnbaum at the Griffin Museum of Photography”

    Hi Judy! It’s so great to hear about your experiences as a physicist — I find many of my favorite artists are those that bring knowledge of other fields to their work, and I’m excited to see how it shows up in yours!

    Your photographs are so intriguing; the ambiguity that arises from some of the forms is especially captivating. When I first saw the photograph of the horse’s back, I had no idea what it was. At first I thought maybe it was a pair of hunched shoulders, but it wasn’t until I saw the other photos of the horse that I realized what it was. I can’t wait to see what you do in the future, especially if you decide to start using color in you photography!
