The foundation for the Glass Works Portrait Series germinated the first time I shot a portrait of someone peering through a glass object.
A few years ago, my son came to visit and found a cheap lens doubler among my photo gear “toys.” Hearing that it’s the worst lens I ever bought, he took it apart. When he did, we discovered one of the lenses inside was tack sharp, while the other was a useless piece of plastic. He pulled the good lens up to his eye and . . . bingo! It was love at first sight.
