In May of 2003 I held a new exhibit at Border's Bookstore in Pleasanton, California. For a change of pace I looked for a new theme for the exhibit. Below is the result.

Turkey is a fascinating country with a long rich history - from the epic stories of the Trojan War to the real life conquer Alexander the Great; from early Christians to the 20th Century Ottoman Empire. It's also a country of incredible scenery such as the caves of Cappadocia, the mineral deposits of Pamukkale, and the ruins of Efesus. But above all these wonders, it's the people of Turkey who captured my interest and captured my heart. On a tour of Turkey in the 1990's I was impressed with how friendly and charming the people were. By American standards they might be considered poor but they have dignity and determination. It's my hope that the exhibit gave the viewer a glimpse of a different culture but highlighting our our similarities.
