After beginning my career as one of the original Soho loft dwellers in the seventies, I moved to Paris, where I taught photography (in French) at the prestigious American Center on the Boulevard Raspail.
While living in Paris, I had portrait sittings with Jacques Chirac, François Mitterrand, Saul Bellow, Phillip Starck as well as many other luminaries, aristocrats, designers, artists, art dealers, café proprietors and other boulevard-types. My work has been exhibited and purchased by the Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Centre Georges Pompidou and The Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris and The Museum Boymans van Beuningen in Rotterdam.
I am currently assembling a legacy book project that includes the portraits submitted with this application, and memories of that experience. These pictures were done in my loft in Soho circa 1980. They have rarely been exhibited or published.
