Born in Buffalo, N.Y., at 18, I emigrated to England with a draft dodger in response to the Vietnam War. After living there for 10 years as a political refugee, student and documentary photographer, I returned to the U.S. where I earned an M.F.A. from S.U.N.Y. I worked as a Staff Photographer for ABC-TV and PBS-TV and then as the Photography Department head at a local college in Buffalo. While my students won national recognition, I won awards from Kodak, Polaroid, and Nikon. Now I specialize on social and political satire by using macro photography, voice frames, and other means along with sampled images from the TV. I have been awarded numerous grants and a Fellowship from the Nevada Arts Council, for her photography. My work has been exhibited in Japan, China, Germany, Sweden, the U.K., and throughout the U.S. in museums, galleries, and alternative spaces. Three of my photography books are in the permanent collection of the Tate, and M.O.M.A.
