John Verdi

I have been a college teacher of liberal arts for over 45 years, devoting my time to reading books and discussing them with students. About 2 years ago I began to make photos, with the intention of learning how to see better what is around me. I am interested in the many forms that good photography can take, but I limit myself to a few areas. In my more philosophical moods, I continue to struggle with the place of the photographed image in the world of art and in society as a whole. 

My photos are eclectic, which means that at the moment they fall into several classes. I do not stage my photos, but rather try to capture a moment, a scene, an event that presents itself to me, and that can be the beginning of a conversation. I find geometrical shapes attractive, especially those found in human constructions (architecture). I'm also a fan of street photography, both of people and places. I also enjoy making pictures of works of art, including other photos! 

I will add more photos and remove some. I have many more than I've posted here.I may also add or subtract categories. I find placing photos in categories to be confining and misleading, but maybe necessary to organize the site. Please contact me with questions, comments, suggestions, and links to your own work.
