ABOUT

My mission is to connect others to the importance of the past and what better way to do that than with an eclectic vision of eye candy to assault your senses. I create works of art influenced by a classic past-time, while being that educational medium and resource of historical information, sharing an old time photography art form and its counterparts. You'll be better for the experience...

In Flanders Field Museum

Active Project 

Presently collaborating with the Flanders Field Museum in Ypres, Belgium on two separate projects. We have been able to contribute photographic items, that once identified in full, will become one of the museums exhibits. Secondly we have compiled in detail several of our ancestors in war stories, including Marie's Grandfather Captain Frederick William Doran's  that has since been added to the museums ongoing project of soldiers in war. People from five continents and from more than a hundred different countries took part in the war. Their personal stories are all equally worthy of being passed on, my Paternal Grandfather included!
