Before going into photography I was a painter for over twenty years, living in Brookline, MA. In 2012 after a long illness I was fortunate to receive a kidney transplant. It was that event that fundamentally changed my perspective from not wanting to work in a studio solo to working outdoors in collaboration with other artists.
This brings me to the question why do I take photographs; my first reason is that I love the challenge of learning a new medium and the excitement that it brings. Secondly, I enjoy working with people who I meet on the street with the ability to create something on the spot. The third and most important is finding out who are the people are on the other end of the lens, that challenge is what I love most about portraiture.
