About
I am a retired academic surgeon (Professor of Surgery at LSUMC) who has always had a serious interest in Photography as art. In 1972 I studied with Ansel Adams at the last course the master himself taught. I tired to develop holography as a 3 dimensional medical teaching method, and studied at the Holography Institute in CA. I made over 100 holograms of bones and tissue specimens preserved by plantination. Those images are now in the Smithsonian awaiting Congressional funding of a new Museum of Health and Medicine. I have also studied at the Santa Fe School of Photography. Since retiring in 2000 I have devoted myself to using X-ray as art and have published a book on the subject which gives the technique in enough detail that anyone with access to an X-ray machine can duplicate my work.
