This project started after processing a photograph I made of Raisa's jaw. It developed into a portfolio of horses that I know, and who know me. I discovered a sublime, sensual beauty in the curves and muscles of their bodies that reminded me of complex landscapes and human female nudes.
I am an independent, amateur documentary photographer and a surgeon. I have published several photographs and articles in newspapers and magazines. I also published a book of photographs from the 2003 Iraq Invasion titled, "Aid and Comfort to the Enemy: A Surgeon's View of the War in Iraq."
My documentary photography involves long-term work on complex subjects affecting humanity and the natural world.
