I am a photographer who always wanted to be a filmmaker. At the age of fifteen I saw The Manchurian Candidate and was forever changed. Films became something more to me. I saw compositions, tones of black and white and thematic purpose. At the time, I couldn't articulate those early observations, but eventually I did. Photography provided a way to see the world cinematically. I have been photographing for the last thirty five years, primarily in black and white.
