the Singular Improbabilities is a surrealist cycle of images incorporating models from the studio into backgrounds shot across North America and Europe, re contextualizing both models and locations to create a frisson that questions our expectations.

I'm retired from a lifetime of teaching photography and the art history of photography at the University of Victoria. I now work as a fine art photographer with a studio in Victoria's historic Chinatown. My present work takes several forms including the Singular Improbabilities, from which these pictures come. It is a post modern surrealist cycle of images that combine models from the studio with street realities from across Europe and North America. The images in the series create a frisson between expected reality and the experience of the unexpected.
