I have been documenting the small businesses scattered all around the "marginal" neighborhoods of Los Angeles and how they reflect the diversity, culture, energy, creativity and eccentricity of the people who create and work in them.
The fact they are closed on Sundays adds other dimensions of economics and religion and is a mirror to our 24/7 culture of big box stores and shopping malls.
And the light filtering through the old-fashioned burglar bars creates an eerie beauty throwing reflections and shadows on the rainbow of delights just beyond reach — at least on Sundays.

Deep within the rich blacks and glaring shafts of light, we find the city of Sydney as an abstracted backdrop for fragile human presence, a chaotic stage of ceaseless development and consumerism, tempered by the photographer's intimate touch.
The concrete world of buildings and architecture are transformed by the photographer's eye into swooping abstractions, playful scenes, moments of pure visual pleasure.
