Kensington, California


University of Medicine & Dentistry of NJ: New Jersey Medical School, 1986, M.D.


The uneasy coexistence between human populations and the natural world interests me as a photographer. I lived for many years in coastal southern New Jersey, where I was drawn aesthetically to the ordered pilings, decaying buildings and piers, dune fences, structural debris, and kitsch of my seaside town. Deeply influenced by Michael Kenna's work, I came to favor long exposures in low light as I examined the interaction between wind, waves, salt, and the human footprint. I recently relocated to the San Francisco Bay area, where I look forward to exploring my new environment. I am particularly intrigued by the ambiguous quality of everyday objects encountered at the water's edge between twilight and dawn, and the tension between the elements and human expectations of permanence and control. I have come to think of the images as "melancholigraphs".
