BIO

I was born in New Jersey roughly five miles from New York City.  Traveling and living abroad in South America and Europe as a teenager influenced my photography immensely.  I have been living and working in New York City since 1993, and spend summers working and exhibiting in Cape Cod.  I received my BFA from The School of Visual Arts and my MFA from the University of California at Santa Barbara (fellowship award).  I have exhibited nationally as well as internationally.  Selected exhibitions, residencies and awards please refer to my resume.  In addition to my artistic practice, I am a founding member of a group that teaches photography to middle school children in Brooklyn.  This is volunteer work, funded through the generous support of local businesses.  I have also had the wonderful experience of teaching photography at both a high school and college level.

 My work has a strong narrative presence.  I have explored people, history, nature, architecture and beauty through the use of the narrative in my photography and artwork which usually includes the male form.  What has emerged is art that combines the past and present and represents an individual as well as a community tableaux. I have always done all of my own printing photographically and am a true purest in this sense sticking mostly to shooting film and printing in the darkroom.

Journaling has always and continues to be an important  part of my development as an artist. My journals still provide a place for me to capture thoughts and images that inspire me. They act as an artistic outlet or even as an escape. My journals have sometimes taken on a life of their own.
