Dr. Greg's Historical & Modern Photography
Dr. Greg's Historical and Modern Photography
Welcome to my web page. My intentions are simple. Just put some images out there for you to view. I'm not interested in selling them, although if you want one let me know. Eventually they will be the record of a lifetime of photographic work. Obviously, not all of it,—but some.
Who am I and why should you spend a few minutes looking at my images? Perhaps, the best answer is that they represent one human's life struggling to make sense of being human. For very long I hid them from most others. I didn't believe they were good enough to bother others with viewing them. They may still not be worth that. If so there are a lot of sites out there to "wow" you then you should go on to them, now. If, on the other hand, you are interested in one human's take (pun intended) on life over many decades and his rumination on a medium (photography) that is one of the most influential in the past nearly two centuries and what it means to be a seer using that medium, then come along with me.
Please Note: I am not afraid of the human body or using it as part of the visual narrative of life. Please don't continue if you are afraid, embarrassed or put off by the nude human form.

My photography is the best way I have of coming closer to some of the mysteries of existence. To make a good picture is part of my search. I'm not searching with my camera to please anyone or to report on happenings or to sell pictures. I photograph to learn and to understand. ~ Wynn Bullock
