I picked up a camera as a teen and have been shooting ever since. My first source of inspiration was a book of photographs of “The Family of Man,” probably one of the most significant photo exhibitions ever created. I discovered the work of photographer Dorothea Lange in that book and was drawn to her images of the human condition.
I mostly practice street photography because it provides an immediacy and down-to-earth feel that I think many people can relate to.
Over the years, I have used my art for work with nonprofits and corporations, but now I walk daily in New York City (or the town I’m in at the time) and hunt for a scene of contrasts, or the unexpected.
I have exhibited in group shows in New York City and a solo show on Roosevelt Island, “The Quality of Light.”
