Preface

In my career as an artist I have always maintained a strong interest in the connection between painting and photography. As an amateur photographer, it has been my practice to always have my camera with me to document imagery that visually speaks to me. These photographic images have remained in my portfolios or computer files and were never exhibited. Through this monograph, I am starting the process of organizing and putting some of my photographs into a published format.

Introduction

I have always had a need to document my environment in photography. Because I have lived my entire life in or near a downtown area, I have been drawn to the downtown as a primary subject in my photographs.

For this monograph I have selected two groups of my photographs of downtown Bay St. Louis, MS, the town in which I was born and raised. The first group of photographs I took in August of 1964. This was the Bay St. Louis that I remember growing up. I had recently turned 21 years old and I had the felling of looking through the lens of my camera, back in time, in search of my early years in the town. I have selected six of those photographs.

The second group of photographs was taken in November of 1989; I was 46 years old. In August of 1969 Hurricane Camille had destroyed much of the beachfront property that I knew as a young boy. The remaining landmarks were fused together with new business to form the Bay St. Louis of a new era. I have selected 18 of these images for this e-book.
