Good morning! catching up to a lot of work, here is finally an update to some of my recently published work. On the newer front is my upcoming exhibition along Boulevard Saint Germain in Paris – details on my FB page for those of you living and /or visiting Paris and would like to attend: http://www.facebook.com/FJEimages – Please enjoy this latest teaser with more to come shortly.
Pacific Design Center, Los Angeles (detail, re-capture version 2013, monochrome)
BNF, Paris (one of my favorite places to shoot, this time I was able to catch some great clear reflections and work the tones)
La Défense (revisited a new building site, this time aiming to frame entirely on site, and I cross processed for full effect)

Good morning!…After a profound year of change and reflection for many, I welcome 2014 as the year of consolidation. To celebrate sometimes is to take a step forward, or simply to take a step, but celebrate at last. Change is inevitable and embracing it means treading on new waters, and learning to cope with new found confidence. Among some of my decisions (no pressure…lol!) I opted for launching a series of architectural black and white photographs; 10 to be exact. I had them critiqued, undertook minor corrections, and finally had them printed. Beautiful Baryta paper especially formulated for BW work…….intense blacks and exquisite whites, contrasts and subtle lines showing to the naked eye. I was pleased then, I am pleased now.
Below lie the works described. It is my plan to locate suitable gallery space to show them, Paris (where I reside) is my first choice, but a home is a home, and as told to me by friends and colleagues, no serious offer can or will be refused. I have had the fortunate luck to show in Buenos Aires, Los Angeles and Catanzaro (Italy) – what’s next? I don’t know, but confidence and perseverance will dictate the path, and trust will create the right partnership. Please enjoy, thank you for coming and, as it has become a necessary custom nowadays, all works are part of my domain and are thus copyrighted.

Thank you for stopping by, always~
Good morning!…..today I am attaching two photographs taken March 2012 while visiting my main ‘hang-out” in Los Angeles – Gehry’s Concert Hall. Again the emphasis is on the lines and their flow and they intend to present the strength of the ‘metal’ in two different ways….at night (with the sky totally blackened / monochrome) and during the day, softer, calmer. Again it pays to return to a certain site over and over to push the boundaries of imagination and see what the day tells you; how the light plays its game on that day. I often do that, return to the same place many times to see what I forgot, retrace my steps, talk to the building sort of thing. Hope you enjoy them……
Thank you for visiting and as usual, feel free to drop a line…
