I moved to Iowa in 1971 to pursue a doctorate in comparative literature.

While I was in graduate school n the 70s,  I learned photography and worked for four years as a photo editor for the Daily Iowan in Iowa City.   Even after I quit as a photojournalist, I continued for years to shoot the advertising photographs.
