BODIES OF WATER
Marsh is 24 years old, and he struggles with a tormenting secret. Feeling disconnected human relationships others take for granted, Marsh treads water in the often painful doldrums of everyday life. One evening, a spark ignites Marsh's imagination of what could be and he embarks on a very private quest.

"I have been photographing since being presented with a clunky East German camera in 1966. If one overlooks the nearly thirty years between 1976 and 2003 when I worked in the computer software rat race, started a couple of related businesses, and hardly touched a camera, one could say I have been at it a long, long time.
In 2015, my book of street photography, FAIR WITNESS, was published by the Italian publisher Damiani. Since 2015, I have been steadily pursuing a life change from fine art photography into film making.
My photography Inspiration comes from the photographs of Henri Cartier-Bresson, the godfather of street photography; Americans photographers Elliott Erwitt, Lee Friedlander, Richard Kalvar, and Garry Winogrand, and Czech photographers Josek Sudek, Josef Koudelka, and Jindrich Streit.
In recent years, I've rediscovered my writing talent in the form of screenwriting. I have written numerous short film screenplays and have seen three of them produced. Mu film inspiration comes from Richard Linklater and Jeff Nichols. "Bodies of Water", which I wrote and directed, was completed in November 2017 and has been accepted by a number of film festival in 2018 with hopefully more to come."
