For a number of years, I have been documenting the activities and going-ons of people in the public space. My choice of subject matter stems from my earliest exposure to photography: the Sunday edition of the Worcester Telegram, and the Time-Life volume of WWII books that were kept in the living room of my childhood home. These sources shaped my inherent view of what a good photograph should be, and helped instill an appreciation for the undisturbed, candid moment. It is for this reason that the streets and sidewalks of the places I've lived and visited became the stage for my work. Over the years, I've come to appreciate the camera’s unique ability to freeze the most seemingly banal moment or gesture and amplify it to give it a sense of meaning worthy of a viewer's attention.
