La Tour Eiffel – NFT
A visit to the top of the l’Arc de Triomphe gave me this perspective of La Tour Eiffel, tucked in by the surrounding buildings. I love the gradient light of shadows in the foreground and the fog layering the background.
Captured in 2003 on black and white film with the Mamiya 645.
In the shadows, I found what lights me up.
This series of abstract photographs is my homecoming to black and white film. After 20 years as a professional photographer, I felt called to reconnect with my art.
The same 35mm camera I learned photography with became my faithful companion as I wandered the streets of Chicago, creating.
All images are captured, developed, and scanned by me.

What is Web3?
Decentralization. Cryptocurrency. Blockchain. NFTs.
Web 1 was the beginning with static web pages and no interactivity.
Web 2 has meant content creation, platforms, social media, and big tech owning your data. We’re still here.
Web 3 is the next phase of the web. Decentralized and giving creators more control of their data. We’re expanding here.
What is an NFT?
Non-Fungible Token is what it stands for but what does it actually mean?
An NFT is a unique digital asset that is bought and sold in cryptocurrency. It can be an image, a movie, an audio file, or a 3D model. Think JPG, PNG, GIF, SVG, MP4, WEBM, MP3, WAV, and more.
NFTs include art, music, sports, games, and more.
Think paintings, photography, digital art, poetry, songs, VR, AR, and the list goes on.
NFTs are bought and sold in cryptocurrency.
Cryptocurrency is a digital currency that operates on the blockchain, a decentralized database of a network of computers that act as a ledger of transactions to verify the sale.
What makes NFTs unique?
Ownership is authenticated on the blockchain verifying the original creator.
There is only ever one original. It may be possible to have a copy but the value is in the original.
An NFT is rare. It can be a 1/1 piece or a limited quantity.
When an NFT is resold, the original creator receives a commission.
NFTs are immutable thus reducing censorship.
