I began making independent underground films at UC Berkeley before coming to Paris for 3 months... now forty years later, I’m French as well as American. I started out as a press photographer with Rapho and Black Star, then shot advertising, corporate, science and education, all the while engaged in photography as fine art. For the last decade my exhibits have featured one-meter square prints: “Square Meters”, “Urbanality”, “Uncanny Squares”, and “Duplicity". Street photography and portraiture have been my overarching pleasure. I'm currently writing a book about the one photo that inspired my work and changed my life, included in the Phantom of the Park series as "the Mother of all phantoms".
