Wenzel Summer Day Camp.png

As I am now retired, I have been able to more fully explore different genres of photography.  I enjoy street photography and nature; photographing landscapes and wild life.


In the past two years, I’ve become interested in portrait photography and enjoyed using my skills at Comic-con and Outlander conventions. 


Both venues are terrific opportunities to observe and shoot people dressed as their favorite characters and role-playing favorite scenes.


To me, there is an element of child-like play and imagination in these venues.  That is a theme that I enjoy exploring.  I love to photograph children at play.


I was inspired to make “Summer Day Camp” because of the setting and the two young girls in the picture.


The day camp was exactly what I would have wanted as a child – lots of everyday items to play and pretend with – lawn chairs, carts, buckets and water hoses – even an outdoor piano.


The two girls, plainly good friends, were thoroughly enjoying each other’s company and were having a great time.


Among other artists, the work of Helen Levitt and Dorothea Lange inspire me.
