I have always believed that my photographs say as much about me as what I am feeling or viewing. Throughout my life, I have always enjoyed the simple act of looking at things—watching people going about their business, working, dreaming, loving, alone in their thoughts, and immune from the outside world. I am attracted to that special moment when they are in harmony with their surroundings, pure, naked, unaware and honest. I prefer the viewer to see these photos without captions so they may be free to insert their own personal interpretation or story into each photograph.
I was born in Montreal, Québec, Canada in 1943 and studied fine art at l’ecole des Beaux Arts in Montreal. I became interested in becoming being a photographer after viewing the work of Robert Frank, Andre Kertez and Henri Cartier Bresson.
I studied with the Canadian photographer John Max for 4 years and participated in a number of group shows and solo exhibits in Canada before moving to the United States in 1992. I now spend my time equally between West Palm Beach, Florida and Santa Fe, NM.
I am represented by Robin Rice Gallery in New York.

"Jim offers something that is almost impossible to find online: a truly one-of-a-kind resource. His information about Dynamic Symmetry is meticulously researched and comes from a place of knowledge and genuine interest, not sales, as so many educational sites do. Reading his surprisingly accessible work has helped me to grow artistically in a deliberate and satisfying way. I return to Dynamic Symmetry Art regularly and always learn something new." - Rebecca Isenhart
