Maurice A. Mufson, M.D., M.A.C.P. – Photographer

Not knowing that photography would become my passion when I bought my first film camera, I soon realized that I would succumb to its wonders.  Black and white held a magical appeal, especially the brilliant blacks and pure whites of a carefully printed enlargement. When color film appeared, black and white photography remained a favorite of mine, even into the digital transformation of the field. I shot color films and printed my own Cibachrome enlargements from Kodachrome transparencies. In 2000, digital photography almost replaced all films because of the convenience and high quality of this medium and the uniqueness of bringing photographs to life using the microcomputer as a “dry darkroom.” Digital image enhancements, using various editing software, replaced manipulation of black and white enlargements. Irrespective of the development of high-tech photography, the photographer represents the sole creative through this evolution; the camera provides a platform for the creative eye. The eye directs the camera. Some photographers see well, some do not.  My eye searches for images of interest, guided to them because of their graphic design and intrinsic story.
